A perfect morning for a run, partly cloudy and cool, with the sun warming things up afterward. A small but enthusiastic group came out to challenge themselves over 5k in upper Gibsons, starting and finishing near PaceSetter. Great job by all. Thanks again to Michelle for volunteering, and to Barry for post-race snacks. Barry was also the fastest runner! Results can be found here.

Next and final event of the series is happening September 10 at Persephone Brewing. Grand Prize will be drawn then too! (anyone who has done 4 or more events in the series will have their name entered)
We moved to Halfmoon Bay for this event of the series. Starting and finishing at Connor Park, the course was nearly half trails.
The sunshine was brighter (smoke was thinner) but the temperature stayed reasonable. On this long weekend we weren’t sure how many runners would be around, so eighteen was a good turnout! Fastest male was Findlay Day in 19:12, and his mum Meghan Day (former Creeker now living in Victoria) was fastest female in 27:21. Full results can be found here.

Great turnout for event #2 of the summer 2017 5k series, located at Persephone Brewing! We welcomed 42 entrants of all ages and speeds. Some clouds and one or two drops of rain kept everyone cool before the start when the sun broke through and it was summer again.
Fastest finishers were Theo Kontekakis in 24:42, followed by Dan Brackett in 26:23, and first female Cari Miller in 26:45. Third male was Andrew Duval in 26:48; second and third females were Kelly and Morgan Pollock in 27:59 and 28:21, respectively.
