2021 Boot Race Results

There were some challenges to the 2021 Boot Race: McCarthy Boulevard is closed to vehicle traffic and an obstacle course for pedestrians, The rain Thursday night made the normal race route unsafe, flooding closed the washrooms at Rick Hansen park and the race clock failed before the race but the volunteers and runners were eager for the first live club event since the beginning of the pandemic so everyone showed up.

The race began on time with 12 runners and a great crowd of volunteers to time them. Jan and Robert ran neck and neck throughout the race right to the finish line where Robert edged Jan out to take the much coveted trophy home to Waldeck. (Ok, I think they were chatting until the last few metres). Sunshine and laughter were everywhere and we look forward to seeing everyone at future RRRC events

Boot Race 2021 – in person

Great news! We are proceeding with this years Boot Race. We are limiting registration to 20 people and we expect everyone to maintain social distancing at the event.

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 – unless they beat their time, too.

Come on out and have some fun.

Entry fee – $15.00
