Once again Vancouver Frontrunners absolutely rocked the BMO race event yesterday and the results are phenomenal.
VFR recorded perhaps the highest turnout for any running event yesterday with a total of 38 registered participants! Congratulations to all of you who made it out to run and finish their respective events.
Kudos to Kai S who set a new PB with an astounding sub 1:30 half marathon performance, Kangsoon P who joined the ranks with his Boston Qualifier, Clare H with her top 10 8K performance in her category, and Rohan H who trained and ran a perfect marathon meeting his goal time with seconds to spare.
The Marathon Relay event was a smashing success for VFR with 5 teams entering as recreational, 3 of which placed top 10 overall!
Honourable mentions go to Nicholas S who tore the anchor leg with a blistering 3:48/km performance, Xavier T, Jeff C, & Andrew H who far exceeded expected times in their respective legs, & Gerry T who conquered Camosen hill to come in his exchange point ahead of schedule! Well done everyone!
