The runners I was able to chat with at Mountain of Hope enjoyed themselves. A few suggested there was water more than knee deep – but it didn’t sound like a complaint.
Early arriving runners warmed up with a dash to their cars while a short downpour drenched anyone left outside. A nice breeze left the mosquitoes to lurk from a distance. And for me, I never found any ticks – bonus!
A big thank you to volunteers for the event – Linda, Doug, Patti, Danielle, Gareth, Lee, Wanda, Roweena, Tom and Rick, as well as to the Running Room staff. These people made the event possible. Forgive me if I missed anyone.
Gareth and Danielle were taking photos – enjoy the slideshow.
Congratulations to all finishers, participants and winners of Mountain of Hope 2013. I enjoyed the event and I hope you did too. Mark your calendars for the third Saturday in 2014! In the meantime, join us for the Summer Trail Race Series, Regina Beach Trail Race and Pasqua Lake Trail Race.
