Canadian Death Race, Grand Cache Alberta, Aug 4-5, 2018

posted Aug 5, 2018, 3:01 PM by Gay Renouf

Death Racer! The Death Race is an Alberta trail race of 125 km of trail, climbing 5200 m, and most commonly done by teams of 5. Two Regina runners completed the course as soloists. 

Derek Anaquod is proving himself to be one of the most competent and consistent ultra runners around. Derek finished in 17:46:24 (30th M) despite having some interesting stomach adventures...Dan Collier finished possibly his first ultra?? in 23:20:36 (113th M). This year, it appears that the soloist finishing rate was 51%. Huge congrats

Sinister Seven 100 Miles, Crowsnest Pass AB, July 7-8, 2018

posted Jul 13, 2018, 11:46 AM by Gay Renouf

Congrats to all the Regina runners who ran in the notoriously gnarly Sinister 7 July 7-8 inthe Crowsnest Pass. The race is composed of 7 tough trail stages that add up to 161 km and 6400 m of elevation gain and loss. While most runners tackle it as a team, we had 4 brave soloists from Regina this year.

Derek Anaquod finished 21st M (!!) in 25:17:44, followed by Mathieu Ludlow and Cody Wilkes in 28:23:41, tied for 57th. Unfortunately our stalwart super Ultra Runner, Jon Paradowski, didn’t have a great day, and only (😂) finished five stages.

Regina teams also ran super well. The Vintage Vixens (Karen Lawson, Lisa Hoffert, Mel Petersen, Katelyn Silversides, Bevin Thompson, Karissa LePage and Kaytlyn Criddle) won the Women’s division in 16:45:08! The Lactic Asses (Rahul Bhattacharya, Rick Minett, Shaun Hesse, Tracy Fisher, Angela Dtolz, Gerry Nagy and Shaun Hesse) came 7th in the Mixed Team in 17:37:47. And Another Drunk Idea Gone Wrong (Michael Dahlman, Ryan Probe, Amy Carlson, David Weisgerber, Guy Beaulieu, Brendan McGuire and Evan Hahn) ran 21:40:04 for 48th in Mixed Team.

Congrats all - we are proud of your gutsiness and endurance!

CanadaMan Extreme Triathlon, July 8, 2018, Lac Megantic

posted Jul 13, 2018, 11:42 AM by Gay Renouf

Saskatchewan triathletes must be getting a reputation for seeking the hardest races. Last year, we had two MM athletes do an extreme triathlon - this year, Bruce Moore finished the Canada Man in Lac Megantic on July 7.

Each stage tries to be more difficult than a typical Ironman. In the water, the athletes had to swim in the dark.

The bike was 180 km of thousands of meters of climbing, some well over 10% grade. The marathon length run finished with 12 km of just plain meanness. Previous athletes who have "run" it, reported "tangled roots, mud that sucked your shoes off, near vertical sections - all in the dark".

Bruce finished 4th in the M 60 division in a time of 19:08:18. Congratulations Bruce - that is truly a top lifetime achievement!

Powderface 42 Trail Marathon and Half Marathon, Kananaskis AB, June 30, 2018

posted Jul 2, 2018, 11:26 AM by Gay Renouf

Wowzers, did our local runners ever excel at the Powderface 42 in Kananaskis Alberta on June 30! The Powderface is a rugged trail race with lots of ups, downs, and single track - and its distance is longer than advertised - about 44 km for the marathon. Our local runners really cleaned up! Rick Minett won the Men's 60-69 age group in 5:49:39; Jason Hubick won the Men's 50 age group in 5:57:31; and Lane Rathgeber ran 7:53:48.

In the half marathon, Saskatchewaners nearly swept the Men's 60 age group with Richard Mawson winning in 2:49:14; David Fox second in 2:59:53; and Alan Barry 4th in 3:08:28.

Congrats to you all!
