Approximately 140 runners and walkers took in the 30th annual Run Through Time 5K at the University of Victoria on New Year’s Eve.
The fun run, walk and for those feeling competitive “race” started at 6:00 pm sharp.
The event is a fundraiser for a Frontrunners Footwear initiative called Runners of Compassion. Participants are asked to donate clean and lightly used fitness gear to the event. The donations are passed on to runners and walkers in need of support.
“The Run Through Time is such a tradition for many and we love seeing families come out and support the event,” said race director Louise Hodgson-Jones. “It was a lovely evening for a run and seeing some of the costumes and tutus was a delight to watch. A big thank you to all of the participants and volunteers.”
Under the veil of darkness and near-freezing temperatures, runners and walkers set out around Ring Road for two laps, plus a little extra length added to make the course is an accurate 5K route.
Prairie Inn Harriers running club member Chris Callendar took the early lead and never let up. He finished well ahead of second place with a finish time of 17:55. The second place finisher was fellow Harrier Gary Duncan, who crossed the line in approximately 19:00. Duncan was followed in by Mike Richards in the time of 20:29. The first women were a mother-daughter pair Maia Watson and Lucy Smith who finish in the time of 21:15. The two finished 6th and 7th overall.
The finish placements and exact times may be adjusted as results continue to be compiled.
