The 32nd annual Running Room Resolution Run saw 82 participants line up at 5:00pm on December 31 to complete a snowy 5k event. The temperature and winds cooperated and the streets were only mildly slippery as the runners and walkers negotiated the snow covered course.

Finishing times were a few ticks slower than normal but all starters finished and there were no reported mishaps in the group.

Overall male finishers were Mika Muinonen (21:33), Connor Boyce (22:44) and Ryan Marsaw ( 23:45).

Overall female finishers were Sandra Denomme (29:04), Claire Parkinson (29:20) and Johnna Muinonen (29:41).

Thank you to the Running Room staff, all participants and volunteers for making our Resolution Run a success.

See you next year.

Rocks bring in the year in Killarney

by Michelle Brunette

Thinking about the Rocks today!

Jamie and I ran the Crack; we brought snowshoes just in case, but decided to run on the semi-packed trail.
Footing was fine until the steep inclines, but mostly good terrain.

More good news...Jamie committed to his first half (Hypothermic).

Wishing All a fantastic 2017!
Hope to catch up for a run soon.
