Arrowhead 135 Miles, International Falls, Minnesota, January 29-31, 2018

posted Feb 11, 2018, 12:57 PM by Gay Renouf

The Arrowhead 135 ultra in northern Minnesota on January 29: Imagine running further than 100 miles. Imagine doing it in winter. Imagine that 135 miles being on a trail with relentless hills. Imagine 135 miles of snowy trail, pulling all your food and survival gear, perhaps seeing noone else for 10 or 12 hours. Imagine being on the course in -15 degrees and losing feeling in your hands and toes, and wondering whether to push on or not - will your fingers and toes recover, or will you actually lose some. Our Jon Paradowski finished this race in 52 hours and 49 minutes, finishing 23rd in the Running division. Imagine how proud we are.

Congrats to Christian Riegel and Katherine Robinson for completing a tough ultrarace. The Cold Water Rumble has an elevation gain of 630 m, and travels through some varied and rough terrain. It reportedly includes single track, running through sand, over rocks and boulders, and through dry wash beds. The two finished a scant second apart in 7:38:18 and :19, giving Christian 12th place in the Men's 40 division and Katherine 13th place in the Women's 40 division.

Cure for the Brrr, January 6, 2018

posted Jan 7, 2018, 8:20 AM by Gay Renouf   [ updated Jan 9, 2018, 2:39 PM ]

Well that one was the best Cure for the Brrr yet! Mother Nature was exceptionally kind with temperatures ranging from -8 up to -1, and lots of sunlight. We got to watch the sun rise, and one runner even saw a coyote on the path!

Our volunteers were incredible - stepping up to deal with Wascana Place not opening its doors, pizza not being delivered, and a race director who had gone walkabout! Particular thanks to Lynne Scherr, Cari Bode, Rob McLeod, Michel Turmel, Mike Renouf and Milos Kostic.

Las Vegas Marathons, Nov 11-13, 2017

posted Nov 13, 2017, 9:23 AM by Gay Renouf   [ updated Nov 22, 2017, 3:07 PM ]

Las Vegas was filled with Regina runners this weekend! 27 did the Rock and Roll marathon or half-marathon, and four did a crazy event - three long distance runs in three days!

Our Regina athletes really brought home the hardware from the three day event, Three of a Kind, in Las Vegas. Lee-Ann Ricci ran a marathon on day 1 (5:06:04), two halfs on day 2 (2:13:57 and 2:23:52 in the Rock and Roll half) and a marathon on day 3 (5:33:06) to win the top woman status in the two marathons and second woman in the half marathon.

Meanwhile, Jan Steenkamp ran three marathons in three days (5:25:17, 4:54:16 and 5:45:15) to earn 2nd in 50, 2nd M overall and 3rd M overall. Tania Diener ran two marathons in two days (5:03:18 and 6:20:39) to win 2nd W50 and 2nd W overall.

Wendy Tomyk, in her first attempt in this kind of event, ran three half marathons in three days in 2:19:04, 2:14:07, 2:21:30 for 2nd W50, 3rd W overall and 2nd W overall.

Awesome job crew - we are totally impressed!

In the Rock and Roll marathon, Lorraine Brezinski was the fastest Regina woman in 3:46:09 for 13th place in W35. Cam Thick was the fastest man (qualifying for Marathon Maniacs here!) in 3:57:08.

In the half, Darren Engel was the fastest Regina man in 1:35:53 and Donna Kish was the fastest Regina woman in 2:07:14. Congrats also to these half-marathon finishers: David Belanger, Scott Rattray, Greg Harris, Curtis Kish, David Button, Kelly Gallagher, Enio Ricci, Lee-Ann Ricci, Katherine Roberts-Zimmer, Dean Zimmer, Cheryl Cochrane, Tom Cochrane, Tori-Anne Bottom Desjarlais, Rics Laurence Lao, Roselin Gladys Stonechild, Jennifer Kaytvr-Berzinski, Kristie Feliciano, Benjamin Hernando, Tyneesha Eaglechild, Shaunessey Beriault, Danelle Reiss, Sandra Rae Wankel, Samantha Koch Burton, and Rochelle Lao.

Javelina Jundred, Fountain Hills Arizona, October 28-30, 2017

posted Nov 9, 2017, 6:00 PM by Gay Renouf

Jon Paradowski, our prolific ultra, ultra runner, has had another adventure. Jon was running the Javelina Jundred in Fountain Hills, handling the 90 degree temperatures with aplomb, when at about 100 km, he fell badly on some rocks and injured his arm. The race medical aid examined Jon's arm, and pulled him from the race, thinking it was broken. But Jon was not willing to give up - it was only a flesh wound! Jon got a volunteer to drive him (45 minutes) to a hospital in Scottsdale, got an x-ray, found out that the arm was not broken, only badly bruised, and convinced the doctor to write a note saying that x-rays showed that his arm was not broken. Back he raced to Fountain Hills, promising a large tip to the taxi driver if he got him back to the race course quickly. After some fast talk, Jon convinced the race officials to let him carry on. Despite his little break (ha ha), he still finished the race under the time limit.
