We had a beautiful day for the race. The course started from Rick Hansen park with a short loop that allowed spectators to cheer the runners on as they recrossed the start line within a minute. There was a full loop of the island which caused the tension in the crowd to build as they could watch the runners catching and passing each other as the race developed. The timers and finish judges were preparing for a video finish but the pack spread out some before crossing the finish line so a normal photo finish was all that was required.
All the racers did a great job and there was lots of chatting and laughing as runners and volunteers enjoyed a snack and a drink while waiting for the official results. Doug Leask is the proud owner of the Coveted Boot Race Trophy for the next year.
