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!

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.
