The running series, which began on Sept.4, is an informal group of low key, cross-country running races, consisting of six races and one relay, being held over an eight-week period. The series was created to develop the sport of cross-country running within the Peace Region.
In the boy’s Grade 1-3 race category, Fort St John residents included first place winner Owen Barrow, as well as Tyler Webster and Tristen Bourassa. Alyssa and Sarah Webster both raced in the girls Grade 4-6 category, Norma Webster raced in the Women’s 35-49 category, and Barb Polehoykie and Joanne Gorman took part in the Women’s 50+ Master 2 division, placing first and second respectively.
The aim of the running series is to encourage participation of athletes of all ages and skill levels. In order to be eligible for a series award, one must complete at least three races. If more than three are completed, the racers best three results will be counted.
Next week organizers are hoping to go to Grande Prairie for the final X-Country race in the series.
