Runners bring home medals

Oceanside Running Club places at first race of 2015 in Saanichton

The Oceanside Running Club started off on the right foot to begin 2015 at their first competition down in Saanichton.

It was the first race for the ORCA team of the 2015 Front Runners Island Race Series, which was an 8-kilometer run. With more than 600 runners competing in the Harriers Pioneer Inn 8k race at Saanichton, the club brought home a handful of medals.

Age category winners included Terry Riggins (65-69) and Jill Davies (70-74) with Patti Rogers (55-59), Barb Spencer (50-54), Jim Mclean (80-84) and Melissa Ross (30-34) all on the podium and earning medals for their efforts.  Ross ended up running the fastest club time with a very quick time of 29 minutes and 23 seconds.

Anyone interested in racing, running for fitness, fun and friendship, or with new goals for 2015 that include joining a ‘Learn-to-Run’ clinic can contact the ORCA running club for more information. You can check their website at www.orcarunning.ca or for the ‘Learn to Run’ clinic, give Rod Bailey a call at 250-927-4690
