Results from 5-Dollar 5K Series 2019 Race #4

Start of 5-Dollar 5K Series race #4

The spring 2019 edition of the PaceSetter 5-Dollar 5K Series concluded on Sunday March 10 under sunny skies and the mildest temperature so far. It was actually pleasant standing around at the finish line, even for participants who raced in shorts. Could spring be finally here?

Roberts Creek’s Keaton McIlwraith took first place for the 3rd week in a row. The temptation of a mega-sized chocolate bar, offered by volunteer and club-mate Alison Rhodes as a reward for beating last week’s personal best time, didn’t quite do the trick – but McIlwraith’s time of 20:07 was not far off and Rhodes relinquished the chocolate prize nonetheless.

Second place was again claimed by Sechelt’s Jamie Leveque, who managed to carve off another 11 seconds from his 5K personal best, even without the lure of candy.

Third overall and first female Kallalei Ryden of Gibsons slashed 23 seconds from her previous best time. She recorded 21:00 thanks to some pacing help from 1500m specialist and former Chatelech Eagle Jordan Wilson, who was visiting home for the weekend.

Sacha Stipec of Gibsons also put down her best time of the series (21:40) to again claim second female honours, three seconds better than last week’s result.

Third woman across the line was first-time racer Sara Skeath of Sechelt, who was thrilled to complete the 5K well under the 30 minute mark, with the clock reading 29:21.

The organizers would like to thank our dedicated volunteers Alison Rhodes, Nadine Slingerland, Ann Law, and Cole Buryniuk.

Next local race is the BMO Sunshine Coast April Fool’s Run presented by Eastlink, on Sunday April 7. And the second annual Sunshine Coast Brewery Run Series will be returning in June and July. Keep training and we’ll see you at the races!

PaceSetter 5-Dollar 5K Series 2019 - race 2 start

Another sunny, frosty day greeted the participants of the second race of the spring 5K series at PaceSetter. Nearly the same number of runners took part as last week, while new winners claimed the overall spots.

Gibsons’ Keaton McIlwraith was first across the line, just missing a sub-20 clocking by a couple of seconds but setting a personal best nonetheless. Last Sunday’s winner Jamie Leveque of Sechelt was second this week in 21:10.

Top female finisher was Kallalei Ryden of Gibsons, slashing nearly a minute off last week’s clocking to cross the line in 21:23, good for a repeat third place overall. Elphi track teammate Sacha Stipec (Gibsons) ran pretty much the same time as last week (22:10), which had placed her ahead of Ryden in race #1 but second among females this week.

Rounding out the top 3 was Stephen Rhodes of Gibsons for the men (23:15), and Meaghan Spithoff of Roberts Creek for the women (27:18). Spithoff handed off the baby-jogger-pushing duties to husband Daren this week, allowing her to cut more than 3 and a half minutes from her time.

Organizers Teresa and Larry would like to thank volunteers Susan & Randy, Lori & Jamie, and Alison for coming out to help!

Race #3 is next Sunday March 3rd, same time, same place — 9am at PaceSetter.
