Well it really was an incredible weekend for the Harriers... In addition to the victorious exploits in the 5 peaks, we had two more victories to celebrate.
The weekend was kicked off in style by Carl Pryce taking the Lost Soul 50k race with a certain amount of ease - cruising to victory in 5 hours 27 mins - 30 minutes ahead of second place. The course is a punishing hilly affair and Carl's time is all the more impressive when you take into consideration the heat he had to contend with down in Lethbridge on Friday. The results are here:
Carl was originally planning the 100 miler but dropped to the "shorter" distance only a few days ago and clearly it was to his liking...
And to round off the weekend, Harrier Mark Fewster won the Canmore half marathon (on another very hot day) in a shade over 80 minutes. His winning margin was slightly less than Carl's but clearly Mark had the legs to hold off a strong challenge from last year's winner. The results are here:
Congratulations to both Harriers!!
A quick reminder that the deadline for ordering singlets is 5pm tomorrow (Tuesday). We are going to try and see if we can get women's singlets too...
