"Ran 7 summits trail in Rossland this past Wednesday on my way through to Vancouver – What a fantastic trail…worth going back for sure and running it as a posse. It turned out to be a great warmup run for a last minute entry into the Rubble Creek Classic Trail Run, a 26km jaunt up (1,000m), in and around Black Tusk mountain and back down (1,300m) to Rubble Creek (more info: http://www.piquenewsmagazine.com/pique/index.php?cat=C_Sport&content=Rubble+creek+run+1639 ) just outside Whistler.
No official results yet but it ended being a great battle between Oliver Utting and myself, down to the wire on the final 8km steep descent and I just managed to squeak out the win (and a new course record!) by a few seconds. Now my legs are…fried!"
Good work, Phil! Don't forget there are a number of races this weekend including Ambulance Chasers, River Park Classic, Harvest half - all of which are great warm-ups for the main event - the Alberta XC series race on October 10.
Keep those race reports coming!!
