What:  5km Fun Run / Time-trial

When: 9 am Sat March 17th

Where: Dolphins – the Grand

Who: All Runners

You are invited to join our  5km “time trial” run.  We will meet at 9 am for a group warm-up and begin the time trial around 9:45.  This is not an official race but we will take hand time performances and will mark out a 5km route with 1km markers.  We will have a few prizes and you are also invited to dress in spirit of the day. It is also possible that we end up drinking green beer somewhere afterwards…and who knows maybe this will be the start of a new St. Paddy’s Day tradition in Kelowna!

Everyone is welcome! Family, friends, kids, 4-legged kids on leashes

Despite waking up to a blizzard, 25 people came out for the 1st Annual St. Paddy’s Day 5km Fun Run / Time Trial.    Our first and greenest runner Alex, recovered from running off the course in the first 100m!  It was fantastic to have so many keen runners out today representing a number of local training groups including high school runners Quinn and Leanne, UBCO cross country team members, Kelowna Running Club, Critical Speed, PACE, Balance Point and of course Canadian Running Clinics.  In the four year old division, we had two all-stars running an entire 2 km: Owen and Abby!  Thanks to Al, Nate, Nikki, Pat & Corrine for helping with timing; and to Mizuno and Solo Bars for providing some draw prizes.  Stay tuned for next year…results may no longer be on first name basis.
