THE VANCOUVER Sun Run is considered to be the largest 10 kilometre race in Canada, seeing athletes of various skill and ability show up from near and far to participate.

At this year’s April 15 event, 10 Terrace residents travelled to take part in the run, which kicked off in downtown Vancouver and saw athletes of all ages race to the finish line.

From Terrace, Birgitte Bartlett,  who races in the Female 60-64 category, finished with a time of  55:25.

Susan Spalding, finished at 58: 34 in the F50-54 category; Geri Inskter, F50-54, 1:37:54; Lorna Brown, F45-49, 1:31:11; Ron Bartlett, M55-59, 1:09:15; Nina Peden, F35-39, 1:09:22; Tania Vance, F30-34, 1:10:34; Shane Pauls, M45-49, 1:00:44; Matt Brown, M16-18, 51:35; and Laverne Cathers, F40-44, 1:09:25.

The group of Terracites signed up together as a group, said Birgitte Bartlett.

“You could enter as a team and we (the Kitsumkalum team) joined the Aboriginal run,” she said.

The small team joined a larger team of runners and walkers, which was made up of smaller teams from across B.C.’s First Nations communities to make the “largest team in the Sun Run,” said Bartlett.
