STARR sprints

Sooke Trail and Road Runners had four runners competing in the two distances. This is their summary.

The last race of the Harriers Thetis Lake Cross-Country race series, the 10th Annual 5 Mile/10 Mile Cross Country race, was held at Thetis Lake on Dec. 14. There were 152 runners competing in both distances, 122 in the 10 Mile and 37 in the 5 Mile.

STARR had four runners competing in the two distances. In the 10 Mile, in the six deep 60-99 division was Mark Ziegler and Bruce Hawkes covering the hilly and slippery course.

Ziegler came in with a splendid 1:26:44 (2008 1:30:35) and was first in his category, and 41st overall. Hawkes hit the line with another excellent time of 1:44:40 (2012 1:50:50) and placed fourth in his category, and 80th overall.

In the 5 Miler, it was the young and the old, Matthew Thomson (0-19) and Vince Trahan (60-99) opting for the shorter distance. Thomson, in his first race, came in with another blistering time of 40:58 and was first in a field of two, and second overall. It should be noted that he also tied for first place overall with his time of 40:58. What a performance and congratulations in his sprint finish for the overall placing. Trahan was in with a 1:10:11 and was second in a field two and 30th overall.

Well done to all the STARR’s who competed in the 2013 race series.
