This past weekend, XC Ottawa athletes were well represented throughout the Ottawa Race Weekend, showing the running scene that cross-country skiers also know how to pound the pavement!
In the half-marathon on Sunday, Karl led the group finishing 8th overall with a time of 1:16:51, good enough for second place in his age category. Close behind was Peter, with a time of 1:23:27, placing him eighth in his age category. As well, Megan did the 21.1km route around Ottawa in a very quick time of 1:41:09, finishing in the top 2% of a competitive women’s field.
In the marathon, XC Ottawa was strongly represented by alumnus Anna Geiger-Whitlock, who completed the full 42.2km course in a respectable time of 4:41:04. As well, shout out to Ottawa marathon idol Brad Jones who completed yet another in just over three hours, which brings his ‘running’ total to at least 31.
Congratulations to all runners from the weekend! Thank you to all volunteers and organizers for another excellent event.
