We faced a few challenges, seems like we have faced a challenge every time we’ve used the airport trail in the last 3 years. The 10k route started with about 800 meters of out and back running before heading around the airport trail in a counter-clockwise loop around the airport. We did a staggered start with the 10k runners starting 10 minutes before the 5k runners; however, not all the 10k runners had made it back (and past) the start gate which made the 5k start a bit chaotic (sorry about that).
We had a first today, Miran McCask was the first runner to cross the finish line in the 10k event. It’s surprising that it’s taken us this long to have a female take the top spot in either event. Congratulations Miran! Way to go.
I didn’t have a photographer today, so unfortunately no photos to post. If you have photos you’d like to share please send them my way and I’ll get them up for everyone to see.
