2017 Wascana Wander all wrapped up!

Thanks to everyone who came out to the Wascana Wander. It was a fun event and the generous participants made some sizable donations to good charities. I delivered the food to the Regina Food Bank and clothing to Salvation Army. There was 57 pounds of food! And another 39 pounds of clothes! I will take the library donations ($110) this weekend. Thank you!

Finisher’s “medal” at Wascana WanderThe adult participants were all challenged to find 8 books on course, with a time limit of 90 minutes. They brought back pages corresponding to their bib number from each book they found. It must have been challenging – no one brought back 8 pages in time! I heard two ran up to 13 km, finding 6 books. Three folks did find 8 books and went out for a second loop, finding one of the two bonus books as well on the second loop.

I have presented the results below with lots of detail. Because there was a time limit, I tried to make it fair to those who returned on time and to those who found more books. A penalty was applied once 90 minutes elapsed and again for every time the person exceeded the average allowable time per book (9 minutes).
