Race Report

The meet was run on a beautiful Spring evening at the UBC track. The first heat had a wider range of abilities and doubled up as our women’s race. Many of the athletes experienced their first waterfall start under the watchful eye of starter Iain Fisher. The field settled into a number of groups quickly, each working together and racing to the finish. There were plenty of PBs among the athletes including race winner Sean Peicheff setting a new personal best at 48 years old! The top 3 female finishers were Sabrina Wilke (17:57), Ellie Greenwood (18:24), and Manon Plouvier (18:36).

In the second heat, the racing was a little more bunched and pacing was more aggressive than the first. Many of the field were struggling to maintain paces in the later stages of the race but there were still a number of track 5000m personal bests set. The race finished with a sprint finish between club mates Alex Gladley and race director Nicholas Browne both finishing in 15:52 in that order, while Paul McNamara finished third in a track PB of 15:56.
