270 runners of all ages took part in the third annual Dirty Feet trail race at Mount Macpherson on Sunday, Aug. 14.

There were three options for runners, all starting and finishing at the Mount Macpherson Nordic Lodge. The shortest was a five kilometre clockwise loop around the Stimulus trail, with a finish on Black Forest. It featured 178 metres of elevation gain and loss.

The 10 kilometre race brought the runners into the central part of the Macpherson network, starting on Stimulus before heading down Black Forest to TNT and Break-a-Leg and returning on Roadway Ramble. Runners had to climb a total of 323 metres on that circuit.

The signature half marathon tacked on Dusty Beaver, Flowdown and Tantrum to the course, as well as another 411 metres of elevation gain and loss, for 734 metres of climbing and descending in total.

It was an all ages affair, with smiling kids and happy seniors taking to the trails, and a festive atmosphere at the Nordic lodge where the race started and finished.

The top three in each category were:

Female 5K

1. Hannah Kendall – 24:53
