The running series, which began on Sept.4, is an informal group of low key, cross-country running races, consisting of six races and one relay, being held over an eight-week period. The series was created to develop the sport of cross-country running within the Peace Region.

In the boy’s Grade 1-3 race category, Fort St John residents included first place winner Owen Barrow, as well as Tyler Webster and Tristen Bourassa. Alyssa and Sarah Webster both raced in the girls Grade 4-6 category, Norma Webster raced in the Women’s 35-49 category, and Barb Polehoykie and Joanne Gorman took part in the Women’s 50+ Master 2 division, placing first and second respectively.

The aim of the running series is to encourage participation of athletes of all ages and skill levels. In order to be eligible for a series award, one must complete at least three races. If more than three are completed, the racers best three results will be counted.
