Donated by Rhys Harrison, the aim of this award is to encourage members to enter races and especially to support our local Vancouver Island Series.
Any publicly advertised road or trail running races would count but not track, triathlon, or multi-sport adventure races. Any location including outside Canada is eligible.
Adult male or female members of good standing over the full year can apply. Speed is of no consequence, so anyone can win.
The last race of the 2019 island race series was held on Sunday, April 14th at Bazan Bay 5k in Sydney.
- Jill Davies and Terry Riggins were there to represent Orca and both won their age groups
- Jill Davies: first in 75-79 with a time of 30:33
- Terry Riggins: first in 70- 74 with a time of 22:41
Jill completed 6 of the 8 race series and was first in her agegroup for all of them. She was the highest in individual standings to win the $100 Front Runners certificate. Jill also managed to achieve two course records for the Sooke 10k and the Port Alberni Paperchase 15k.
Well done Jill!!!
