Fall run goes the distance
Just over 150 people participated in the 32nd annual All Seasons Fall Run held Sept. 30 here in Terrace that saw athletes of all ages competing in 5k, 10k, and 21k marathon races.
The races started and ended at the college, with routes that winded around the bench and through the horseshoe.
“We had a great day,” said organizer Jack Worobey, noting that there were about 18 volunteers who helped the day run smoothly.
This year’s awards were presented at the college longhouse – a roomier space for the popular event.
“The longhouse was just great for doing the awards,” Worobey said. “[It’s a} great facility.”
In the marathon race, Mike Christensen once again came first overall with a time of 1:26:48.
But Dwayne Felewich was close behind him with a time of 1:28:54 for second overall and a first-place finish for the male 20 - 39 category.
“Dwayne just kept sticking with me at the beginning so I kept pushing the pace harder and harder.” said Christensen, noting that he’d initially planned to run easy as he was fighting a cold. “He was a tough competitor and just would not give in.”
“I suffered badly on Lanfear hill but managed to pull it together for the home stretch and get my best time since I was in my twenties,” he said.
Christensen, who’s son Thomas came fourth overall in the 5k race, said he noticed a number of other father/son participants
“with some great performances from the young men – Travis & Aiden Carter, Curtis and Gavin Bretherick,” he said. “Watch those names for the future.”
Nicole Calame came first in the marathon female 20 - 39 category with a time of 1:38:46.
In the half-marathon, Jacob Haas placed first overall with a time of 37:30, with 15-year-old Luke Whitaker in second with 41:05.
In the 5k, 17-year-old Regan Yee of South Hazelton placed first overall with her time of 18:42.
