127 Runners Take in Road Race Here
A record 127 runners took in this years annual 10 kilometer and half marathon Provost Road Race held early Sunday morning June 8.
Taking top honours with the fastest time in the 21 kilometer foot race was Bill Perry of Wainwright who said that he is happy with my time. He was guessing that his time would be between one hour and 27 minutes or 1 hour and 28 minutes. The stop watch read 1.27.03 when he crossed the line. He was barely breathing hard but said that at the 14 kilometer mark he felt a little stitch in his side but it wasnt too bad. He runs six days per week doing 10 kms. a day and one long run on the weekend. He works in the military as an engineer.
Perry adds that in a couple of weeks he will take part in a 100 km. run at Kananaskis.
First across the line in the female division for the half marathon on Sunday was Liz Nichol also of Wainwright. Her time was 1.32.40. She said right after learning her time after her run that I feel good. This was her best time ever. She runs six times per week.
