2019 Prediction Mile Results

The Regina Road Runners 2019 Prediction Mile took place on March 24th at the Fieldhouse. There were eight participants – two children (Maryn and Logan Japp), one baby, Esmae and 6 adults. The goal was to predict your running/walk time; and then see how close you could actually walk or run the mile (no watches allowed, except for the timers). Art Bonnell and Doug Leask timed while Vicky Bonnell took care of setting up the room.

The children ran last year as well and improved by more than 3 minutes from their last year’s time. The Japp family is quite a family of runners. It was a lot of fun cheering on the participants as they completed each of their seven laps.

There was pizza and pop for everyone afterwards.

The Regina Road Runners AGM followed afterwards with 12 attendees.

2019 Boot Race

When – May 4, 2019, 10 a.m.
Where – A.E. Wilson Park

Cost: Non-members – $15, Members – free
Registration is now open

Boot Race is a 5 km handicap race. For those who have never run a handicap race, or need a reminder, each runner starts the race based on his/her best 5 km time in the past year. If everyone matched his/her time exactly, everyone would cross the finish line together. BUT, if you can beat your best time, you come across the line just a little bit ahead of everyone else.

Come on out and have some fun.
Watch for others using the pathways.
