Okanagan College Media Release

LovigMore than 400 runners crossed the finish line on Sunday at Okanagan College’s 13th annual Half Marathon, 10 K and Relay Race in Kelowna.

The women’s 10 K course record was shattered by Kelowna’s Christy Lovig (36:48). Salmon Arm’s Glynis Sim (38:32) finished second and Kelowna’s Martha Sirdevan (42:39) was third.

The men’s 10 K race was won by Greg Edgar (35:49). Second and third place went to the father-son duo of Jacab and Jeremy Harris; they crossed the finish line together with a time of 36:36.

The half marathon men’s race was won by Vernon’s Aaron Heidt (1:14:49). Kelowna runners Jeff Vogt (1:17:19) and Rory Switzer (1:21:09) finished second and third, respectively.

The female half marathon was won by Claire Young (1:26:44), followed by Tracy Dayman (1:33:48) and then Cindy Rhodes (1:34:19), all from Kelowna.

The half marathon relay event was won by a team from Fresh Air Experience in Kelowna. The team of five runners worked together to achieve a time of 1:38:36.

“We couldn’t have asked for a better day for this event and the group of runners and volunteers who took part this year were incredible,” said Christine Ulmer, Race Director. “I heard runners saying they couldn’t have experienced better weather for this time of year – it was the perfect temperature and nice and dry. The course was really well managed by a great group of volunteers and as always, our participants brought a huge amount of energy to the event.”

The Okanagan College Half Marathon, 10 K and Relay is an annual not-for-profit event that raises funds to support student bursaries.
