Road Runners host successful Mother's Day run

Sunday run at Lheidli T'enneh Memorial Park draws big turnout

The Prince George Road Runners hosted their inaugural Mother's Day 5k on Sunday morning. The race was formerly known as the Gathering and had always taken place on Mother's Day, so the race name was changed so runners could start off the day of celebrating mothers.

Conditions were less than ideal with a chilly, light rain falling under the threat of snow but that did not dissuade the 88 racers who competed in Sunday morning's race. Runners who participated completed two loops of a 2.5km route that made its way around Lheidli T'enneh Memorial Park.

The top male time of the day was Bryce Gladdish who finished with a time of 18:11, and the top female time of the day was Shar Balogh who finished in 19:29.

The race was also a fundraiser for Wheelin' Warriors of the North and all non-member registration fees went directly to the B.C. Cancer Foundation through the Wheelin' Warriors.

Next race for the Prince George Road Runners is the Hurt'n Bear, a 5km, 10km, or 21km trail race that will take place at Pidherny Recreation Site on Saturday, May 28.
