Hi members, this is on behalf of CJ who is on his way to Ottawa now …
Successful event today with 40 of the 47 registrants braving the chilly and windy conditions to start the race. Everyone finished. The race was followed by a reception with awards and draw prizes at Goulds Elementary school cafeteria where there was plenty of fruit, coffee, juice, cookies, yoghurt, and granola bars.
We had a good turnout of volunteers, covering all the marshal positions, start/finish, setup/takedown, and reception. The transition and course looked great, and the route was very safe.
Special thanks to the RNC for providing three cars and ensuring there were no vehicles on the course, City of St. John’s and Dept of Transportation & Works for closing the entire race route, and Henry Power for the load of a truck to cart around all the equipment.

Given the success this year and apparent increasing interest, we will likely repeat the event next year!
