Road Runners rock at T-C 10K

Nine local runners turn in good results on a challenging day in Victoria

The Comox Valley Road Runners were well represented at the 2013 Times Colonist 10K road race, April 28 in Victoria.

Nine Road Runners joined more than 13,000 athletes who registered for this year’s event. It was a cool and windy day, challenging even the toughest of athletes.

The men’s overall winner was Paul Kimugul in an impressive time of 29:49 while the women’s overall winner was Jane Murage in 34:28.

The first CVRR racer across the line was elite master Neil Holm (Extreme Runners/Asics) who ran 34:36 to finish third in the M4549 age group and 28th overall. He was followed closely by fast rising local running star Vince Brotherston who was fourth in the same age group in 34:50.

Wayne Crowe (Extreme Runners/Asics) also raced well to finish second in the M5559 age group in a time of 38:01. Also finishing strongly in this age group were Tom Weber who was fifth in 40:07 and Rick Martinson 41st in 51:04.

Other CVRR racers included young guns Torin and Jasper Halverson who ran 43:51 and 56:46 respectively in the M019 age group. Also running was the husband-wife team of Deanna and Jeff Donovan who enjoyed a romantic run on the waterfront finishing in 53:11 and 54:21. “Congratulations to all of the other Comox Valley racers who successfully completed the race,” a CVRR spokesperson said.
