Congrats to everybody! Wow.
I ran 17 km (2 hours 30) in the AM with Craig, and then came back at midnight sunday to meet him at Cleveland Dam and pace him for the last 1/4 back to Deep Cove (25 km, 6 hours 30). thanks to everyone who came out and made this another successful event!
Neil, Marla and I completed the 100km in 26:54. What an incredbile journey with such beautiful weather and great company along the way. Thank-you Vicky (crew) Wendy (midnight pacer), Marilyn (support), Liza (pacer), Karl (support) and Craig (RD and fellow participant). I think we can all say we've seen enough snow for the year!
Great run yesterday, albeit not as far as I planned. Ended for me at Mosquito Creek/Skyline due to IT-band issues. At the speed I was able to move at that point, I still wouldn't be in Deep Cove! With the run/walk home from there (and not including a lovely detour to Donut Rock!), think the total distance was around 83km... in 17.5ish hours.
Thanks Craig for a great event.
What a stellar day. Loved the course, the snow and the especially my pacers, Adam and David. Thanks guys for keeping things on track. Familiarity with the course helped out a lot as I was able to stay on track for the duration. Bumping into Wardas up Hollyburn and his GPS-equipped bloodhound boys - Doug and Rafe was a blessing as that seemed to be the only section on the course where no one had put down tracks and the route was buried.
Thanks to all who organized the event - or came out in support.
Completed before 11PM, which was my predicted (and hoped for) time. Yay!
Thanks Craig for an amazing day. Put me down for 23:54 on the 100k.
Ran with Laddie, until she turned around, Karl and John until Nelson, Reza until Cypress, Chase (the Brooks guy) until Cypress, and Simon until Mountain Highway. Oh.... and with Derek (my pacer) from the Chute until Deep Cove.
I think I'm relegated to the top floor of my house for the rest of the day! :)
Great weather you picked. Put me down for 40miles in 11:57, including a self-imposed burger break on the return trip with a little detour across the Lynn Suspension Bridge and back. They have great burgers there, pleasant surprize. It wasn't just the hunger making it taste good, but it helped.
I'm back too - had a nice run out there wtih a group of 6 or so (John, Karl, Reza, The "brooks" man from Seattle, and others.. Deep Cove to Pretty much the top of the Hollyburn Chute and back to Cleveland Dam - will try to run another segment a bit later on the trail after the game (maybe) Achilles pretty sore so we'll see. Total time around 6.45 (easy) - not bad for a first run in many, many months of non running due to ingury (recent Trek Red Truck bike camp with Alison and 3 other x Olympicans/pro riders sure has helped along with that Weight training with JB! total apporx 33 km? Thanks so much Craig and all the friendly/nice folks supporting the great/strong runners out there:)
for another protracted spanking: an epic race, a stunning day.
50K: east to west: 8:12.
I ran a short custom run from my place up mosquito creek to Baden Powell where I met up with David Crear on the trail and continued down to Cleveland Dam with him. I then made my way back home via the Cap Pacific trail.Total time about 2 hours for 18km or so with a stop to pick-up some garbage along the way .Good luck to everyone running, a great day to be out there
I will run in the morning - start at Skyline/Mosquito Creek around 7:30ish and run east, then turn around with some of the slower folks and go west back to Mosquito Creek. Will check the website in the morning to see if anybody wants to join me.
