Fall 2003 Results Summary

Fall 2003 - On a cold blustery day (sunny, wind out of the west at 25 km/hr and temperature of 4C) this race turned into a battle for the fastest 10K time. With Alan Farquhar the heavy pre-race favourite coming off a 37 minute time at the Oktoberfrest 10K it looked to be an easy win for Al. On this day it was not to be as Dan Burton nipped Al by 6 seconds in a time of 40:12 and for the first time ever we saw a race where no runner completed the 10K with a time under 40 minutes.

We had a record number of 5K finishers with 15, led by Paul Tierney's 24:13 time.

The trophy for the first time went to a 5K runner, Anette Happel who ran within 4 seconds of her 29:29 predicted time. Congratulations to first time trophy winner, Anette!

The shoe of shame award went to first time 5K runner, Katherine Klosa.
