Yesterday was Calgary's annual police half marathon which saw the Harriers secure a convincing 1-2. Usually this is a snowy affair but this year runners were spared the drifts which they have encountered in previous years leading to faster times than in recent races.
Defending champion Woolstencroft cruised to victory in a shade over 75 minutes on an exceptionally tough course. Just over a minute behind him was Harrier Draude who did his usual race tactic of running a negative split by several minutes (reports had him in 5th for the first half of the race). Completing the top 3 Harriers was Nick Haddow who finished 4th, a fuither minute or so back.

Great running, boys.
Don't forget the 5k on Wednesday everybody. 7pm under the Olympic Arches in Eau Claire.
We have just secured the first two finishers in the Police Half (at great expense in terms of appearance fees) for the BVH 5k on Wednesday. Expect the paparazzi.
