BOOOOOOM! Put an aggressive time on the board at the Apex Dash to set the bar high for everyone else running this week.

I want to scream praises from the top of the highest mountain for Dennis Legault, and the rest of the Apex Warrior team for how unbelievable marked the course was. Between the striped tape and the painted signs, there was absolutely no confusion as to the route we had to follow. Every other aspect of the race was also executed at the highest level, just like everything Apex does.

It was absolutely PERFECT conditions out there today. Legit couldn't have asked for better weather. Rain held off, it wasn't too warm, the black flies were nowhere to be seen, the trails were the driest they have been all year, and the sun actually shined for like half of the race. Absolutely amazing!!! ??

It was nice to see Devon Prosser, Ross Beyers and Ashley Hayes out there getting after it! I love seeing people in the trails, it's such a motivator.

Good luck to everyone else running the Dash this week! Tag me up in your race posts so I can see where I stand! — feeling proud with Dennis Legault at Lake Laurentian Conservation Area.

Toronto Virtual Run for the Ladies

Virtual Run/Walk

Covid-19 has changed many things in our everyday lives. Normally each year my daughter, Jenn Trowell and I do one or two of the Women’s Series events at Sunnybrook Park in Toronto – a wonderful women’s race for POGO - Pediatric Oncology Group of Ontario. I have loved doing the event with my daughter – she runs and I walk and we share the event with many women. It is wonderful to see so many women running and walking: moms and daughters, grandmothers and granddaughters, friends etc. The Toronto Firefighters give out chocolate near the end of the event. Unfortunately this year it has been understandably cancelled as an in-person event but fortunately, it has gone virtual for the three events.

Jenn and I decided to do the virtual run/walk – we had approximately three weeks to do it but we decided to do it at the same time. On Saturday, May 23rd we started at 09:30 – Jenn in Mississauga and me here in Sudbury – both doing the 10 km. event. We texted each other at the start and sent pictures. I did half the loop of the usual Hypothermic Half event – strange to run a 10 km event without volunteers cheering you on and having water stations. However, it was great thinking we were doing it together – our registration fee means we will get shirts and Medals and, also, donating to Pediatric Oncology. We took pictures at the end and, as you can see in the picture, we tried to show the connection we were feeling – my daughter’s idea.

The event goes on until June 7th if anyone in the Sudbury community is looking for a virtual run to have as a goal – 1/2 marathon, 10 and 5 km events. Of course it is in aid of a wonderful charity – Pediatric Oncology. Jenn and I look forward to another of the run/walks in the series this year. Next year we hope to be back at Sunnybrook Park in Toronto doing our mother-daughter event.

High School Senior Leo Daschbach Runs Sub-4:00 Mile at the Quarantine Clasico
He becomes just the 11th high school runner to break four minutes in the distance.

By TAYLOR DUTCH
MAY 25, 2020


A group of high school milers achieved historic performances in the Quarantine Clasico: Sub-4 Attempt, closing out this chapter of their careers with a bang.

On Saturday, May 23, Leo Daschbach became the 11th high school runner in history to break four minutes in the mile. The senior from Highland High School in Gilbert, Arizona, won the mile race in 3:59.54.

“I didn’t realize I was going to run sub-four until I literally leaned across the line and the clock still said 59 [seconds],” Daschbach told MileSplit. “I still can’t believe it. That’s amazing

The small competition was organized after high school seasons were canceled as a safety precaution in response to the global coronavirus outbreak. The race took place at Oak Ridge High School in El Dorado Hills, a rural community 20 miles east of Sacramento, California; COVID-19 restrictions have started to relax in select California counties.

Daschbach is the first high school runner since 2017 to break the four-minute barrier. Prior to the Quarantine Clasico, Daschbach’s personal best was 4:03.98 from the 2019 Brooks PR Invitational. He is now the fastest miler in Arizona history, according to AZ Central.
