Run Club finished another great season at the 2019 Great Big Cookie Run. Their hard work paid off. We had 16 youth toe the start line for the 5 km event. For some of them, it was their first time. A 5 km is quite the feat but they trained hard, ran strong and most of all enjoyed it.
Run Club and Russell Run veterans - Nicolas B. and Conor M. paced each other to place 11th and 12th in their age group. Another veteran, Rylie M. was 5th place in her age group!
We had one youth participate in the 1 km but don't underestimate this sole entrant. Patrick ran a 4:25 km and place 3rd overall. For those of us who witnessed the finish, it was quite the event. There was a fight for 2nd place and he missed it by only 0.6 seconds.
This wraps up the 5th season of Run Club. This group of youth was awesome to work with. They trained hard no matter the weather. Well done kids - you made your parents, family and coaches proud.
Stay tuned - the Russell Run is in the horizon.
