Salmon Arm runners sweep top spots at Revelstoke XC race

Revelstoke Secondary School hosts runners at regional cross-country race on Illecillewaet Greenbelt trails.

Alana Brittin finished fifth in a cross-country running race in Revelstoke on Wednesday, despite being one of the youngest competitors in event.

Brittin finished the four-kilometre girls race in 16:49 to place fifth overall and first amongst the grade eight girls.

The race started from Kovach Park and followed a circuit around the Illecillewaet Greenbelt and over the Mark Kingsbury Bridge. The ever-present rain gave way to sunny skies in time for the race.

Glynnis Sim, a junior from Salmon Arm, ran away (pun intended) with the girls race, finishing in a time of 15:10. She was ahead of the boys when she finished her run, though the boys race was 1.7-kilometres longer. Seniors Emmy Sim and Megan Johnston finished second and third respectively.

Tayla Koerber and Maxine Opatril of RSS finished fourth and fifth amongst the senior girls and sixth and seventh overall.

The 5.7-kilometre boys race was won by John Connor, a senior from Salmon Arm, in a time of 21:45. He edged out Joey Kuhut from Fulton Secondary by only two seconds. Liam McGrath from Seaton was third overall and the top junior.

Bryce Molder posted the top Revelstoke time, finished in 22:30 for fourth amongst the seniors and seventh overall. Gordon Mason was fifth amongst the seniors and 10th overall.

There are two more regional races scheduled for this year – Oct. 9 in Salmon Arm and Oct. 16 in Vernon. The Okanagan Valley championships are scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 22, and the provincials will take place in Langley on Saturday, Nov. 2.
