Team Fluid seventh in Vic

From the bumped-but-not-forgotten files comes word Oceanside’s Team Fluid was in fine form at the Goodlife Fitness Victoria Half Marathon.

“Our half-marathon team finished 10th out of 30 teams entered, and entered the most team members of any registered teams,” said Doug Pickard, personal trainer and part of the team behind Fluid Fitness Studio in Parksville.

The Goodlife was a milestone for a number of local runners as it marked the first half marathon for husband and wife Bob and for Heather Dobinson, Sue Ashton, Collette Hitchings, Jason Moore and Thorston Heimann.

According to Pickard, it was also the first race for Veronica Perkin since having baby Payten in the past year. Thorsten and Veronica plan on doing the full marathon next year.

 

Team Fluid also had a team entered in the 8km distance: Pete Mercer, Taylor Mang, Adam MacKinnon, Jenelle Loewen, Sean Mang, Savannah Mercer, Rita Loewen, Kym Mercer,     Shelby Mercer, and Jeremy Mang all completed and as a team they finished seventh out of 16 teams entered.
