2018 Boot Race Results

What an awesome day for a run!  By race time it was 20 degrees, sunny with a slight breeze.  The race followed the usual course from Rick Hansen park and circled A.E. Wilson Park with a full loop of the island.  The crowd (all 3 of them) watched with racing hearts as the race unfolded.  Several unexpected passes mid-race left the timers and finish judges on edge as the group neared the finish line.  It wasn’t quite a photo finish but close enough to be exciting.

This year we had 3 first time Boot racers.  Rob Humphries ended his first ever Boot Race by taking home the coveted trophy.

All the runners did a great job and there was lots of chatting as runners and volunteers enjoyed a snack and a drink while waiting for the official results.  Mary Simrose was sad to give up the trophy but ran a very strong race.2018 Boot Race Collage

Thanks to the volunteers who helped setup, tear down and manage the race.

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.
Maps will be provided electronically, closer to the event.
Watch for others using the pathways.

Prediction Mile 2018 Results

Sunday March 25 2018, 15 runners and walkers gathered at the City of Regina Fieldhouse for the Regina Road Runners Club 2018 Prediction Mile.

The participants ranged from months old to decades old. Art and Vicky Bonnell and Lee Ubell were there to help with timing and keep things ‘running’ smoothly. There was lots of cheering and heckling from those either waiting their turn or having finished their turn.

Tied for best predictions this year were Yvonne Andrews and Mitchell Japp.  Leah and Maryn Japp came in 3rd and 4th.  Tom Maher relinquished his title from last year and settled for 5th.

There was pizza and pop for everyone afterwards.

The Roadrunners AGM followed with 20 attendees.

2017 Boot Race Results

We had a beautiful day for the race, although wind strength did influence the outcome.  The course started from Rick Hansen park and circled A.E. Wilson Park with a full loop of the island.  This allowed the crowd to watch the race develop and cheer on their favourites.  The timers and finish judges were able to relax as the runners were quite spread out by the finish although no one was able to accurately predict the results.

All the runners did a great job and there was lots of chatting as runners and volunteers enjoyed a snack and a drink while waiting for the official results.  Mary Simrose is the proud owner of the Coveted Boot Race Trophy for the next year, after having missed the podium for the last 5 years.

Thanks to the volunteers who helped setup, tear down and manage the race.

Prediction Mile 2017 Results

Saturday 4 February 2017, 12 Regina Road Runners and friends met at the City of Regina Fieldhouse for the Regina Road Runners Club 2017 Prediction Mile.

The runners ranged from 11 years to older-and-wiser. We had walkers and runners participate. Neither group was expert at counting laps. Everyone had lots of fun cheering on their teammates.

Winning this year was Tom Maher. Congratulations, Tom! Also congratulations to Mitchell Japp and Jeannette Taylor in 2nd and 3rd. Honourable mention to Jaime Lavallee for 4th. Doug Hynne and Petra Dueck tied for the third fastest pace overall.

Also of note, there were 3 participants 16 and under. Austin Taylor had the fastest pace overall and was notably only 20 seconds from prediction (7th overall). Alexander Taylor had the second fastest pace overall and came in 11th. Mustafa Aldulaymi was beat his prediction by 4:29 which was incredible as he had based his prediction on last year’s performance — a spectacular improvement!

There was fruit, pizza, and pop for everyone afterwards.
