Gavin Hamilton and Phil Villeneuve take on TransRockies Run
By: Team XC Ottawa (2009/08/25)
XC Ottawa alumni Gavin Hamilton has continued his athletic pursuits since moving to Calgary. He is still skiing at a high level, and has honed in on his running talent with the UC Calgary cross country team.
This week he joins Phil Villeneuve (many time Canadian Mountain Running Team member and past National Ski Team athlete) as Team Salomon in the GORE-TEX TransRockies run. The race is 113 miles, following a point-to-point course throughout the Colorado Rockies over 6 days.
And the duo is doing well! They were a close second in yesterday's stage, and seem to have what it takes to win the race overall.
