2022 Club Results

Spartan Ultra 50 k, Bigfork Montana, May 7, 2022


Two of our runners who earned 100 km buckles at the Canada Goose Ultra last week actually earned two buckles in 8 days. Jason and Melissa Burns both finished the 50 km Spartan Ultra in Bigfork Montana on May 7. Melissa won second in W40 in 10:17, and Jason earned 4th in M40 in 8:09. The course and event were gruesome - 2900 m of elevation game plus 68 obstacles, in constant rain with some hail and snow.

The running and climbing distances made finishing each obstacle harder. Obstacles included rope climbs, heavy carries, fire jumps, etc. Jason reported that before this event, he hadn’t missed an obstacle for 6 years; he missed two at this event. Each obstacle missed requires the athlete to either do 30 burpees or run penalty laps. Melissa reported a total of 54 km.

This event was definitely type two fun - Melissa wrote that she was crying uncontrollably more than once and full-on bawled at the finish. Jason and Melissa, we are so impressed with and proud of you! And then you topped it off by running 100 km a week later!

Winterman Marathon, Ottawa, Feb 20, 2022


The organizers of the Ottawa Winterman marathon did an incredible job on Feb 20 - they had incredible, cheerful volunteers and even pulled off a venue change at the last moment owing to Ottawa’s downtown restricted owing to the protests. Unfortunately…the footing…In Regina, we should be so happy that Wascana Park brushes the paths free of snow. In Ottawa, they remove snow except for the bottom two inches and then layer it heavily with salt. Ugh.

Nevertheless all Regina runners won their age groups! Congrats to Gay Renouf (5:01:45), Jan Steenkamp (5:40:51), and Tania Diener (6:01:24).
