Welcome to Canadian Cancer Society CIBC Run for the Cure in Sudbury

Run for the Cure start line 2018

All Photos here

For the 21st year in a row participants lined up at Cambrian College for our annual Canadian Cancer Society CIBC Run for the Cure. There have been warm runs, rainy runs, cold runs and just right runs through the years. But this may have been the first time it actually snowed during the event. Cool temperatures did not deter over 400 enthusiastic people from taking to the streets to complete either a one km loop or the full 5km experience. The youngest on the course was in a baby jogger and only a few months into this world while the oldest was a youngish 91 years old.

All figures are not compiled yet but over $50,000 was raised as of run day to help fight the breast cancer battle.

Kelowna Urban SwimRun Event

by Lawrie Oliphant


On Sept 30th Amanda Kosmerley and I competed in the Kelowna Urban SwimRun Event. This was the second year for this event. It was a small event but pretty well organized. You were right we had to wear a jersey over our wet suits and bathing caps but otherwise you could use whatever toys you wanted.

Amanda and I were a team. Although I wanted our team to be called Pebbles and BamBam she entered us as East meets West! We raced with wet suits, hand paddles, pull buoys and running shoes. The day was not necessarily the best since it was single digit temperatures and an intermittent light drizzle but that did not really matter since we were going to be getting wet.

The race began with a 1.2 km run across park grass, a small beach, and then along a board walk in a bird sanctuary. We then went out onto another beach before we entered a park and went up onto a road before entering the first swim. That swim was about 650m before you exited onto a beach and began the second run. Things were pretty bunched up at that point. It was the longest run of the day at 3.7 kms. As that run went along things began to spread out and Amanda and I began to catch people. By the time we entered the second swim we were in third place. From there we swam about 600 meters and exited into another park. From there we ran 650 meters back before we re-entered the water and swam 600 meters back to exit through a park and begin a fourth run of about 2.5 kms. By now we were in second place and within striking distance of the leaders. When we entered the fourth swim we were on their tails and eventually able to pass them. We came out of the water for the fifth run in first place but during that run back to the finish we kept jockeying for position. Unfortunately I could not maintain Amanda’s pace (no surprise there) and they passed us with about 150 meters to go. I did find it hard to sprint across a sandy beach. I have not seen the official times but suspect we finished 10 seconds behind. Good enough for second overall and first mixed team.

Overall it was a fun event and I would do it again. Might be interesting to try it solo so I will be looking at The Kivi Park Race for next year.

Heading off for another bike ride!

Mike Woods/Geneseo Cross Country Invitational

9/29/18, Letchworth State Park, Mount Morris, New York

Sagriff Wins Geneseo. Both LU Squads Place 2nd

Paul Sagriff (Men's winner) (Photo credit to Adam Kalab):

The Laurentian cross-country running teams competed at the Mike Woods/Geneseo Invitational in New York’s Letchworth State Park this weekend with both teams bringing home second place trophies. Over 300 runners and 23 NCAA Division 3 teams competed in the men’s event, while 230 runners and 19 teams participated in the women’s race.

The men’s squad was led by Paul Sagriff’s first-place finish. Sagriff ran the 8km course in a time of 25:13 and was closely followed by teammates Liam Passi, who was 6th in 25:54; Eric Gareau, 16th in 26:20; Caleb Beland, 18th in 26:24 and Dylan McKevitt, who completed the scoring in 28th place in 27:05. Displacers were Jarod Milford who placed 106th in 29:11 and Mika Muinonen, who was 116th in 29:36.

“This was our best result since the men’s program was restored three years ago,” said Associate Head Coach, Darren Jermyn. “And Paul ran a super race. He and Liam Passi took an early lead until Geneseo’s Sean McAneny moved onto Paul’s shoulder at the 5km mark. It was then a duel between Paul and McAneny with multiple surges and a final big kick. It was definitely fun to watch.”

Women's Start (Left to Right: 421 -Jenny Bottomley; 434 - Nicole Rich; 431 - Megan Crocker) (Photo credit to Adam Kalab):

The Laurentian women were led by incumbent champion, Jenny Bottomley, who came back from a summer injury to finish 4th in a time of 22:30 over the 6km course. She received strong backing from Megan Crocker, who placed 10th in 23:11; Nicole Rich, 12th in 23:20; Breanne Steven, 21st in 23:53 and rookie Sarah Thackeray, who was 25th in 24:11. Meghan Sippel was the sole displacer, finishing 37th in 24:41.

“This is our 6th time at this meet and we’ve always enjoyed it,” said head coach, Dick Moss. “It gives us a chance to compete against large fields and the cost is similar to competing in Windsor or Kingston. And to come away with two team medals is a lot of fun. It was unexpected, but the women matched their finish from last year, and the men improved to 2nd from last year’s 8th place finish. Coach Jermyn and his guys are doing a great job.”
