2015 Waterloo Classic

This is our 4th consecutive year doing the Waterloo Classic.  It has been a staple for the team since our inception, and has always been a great way to start summer off on the right track.  We were excited to try a new course on the West end of Waterloo this year, and it did not disappoint.  Here is how the team did:

great time of 18:31, placing 2nd in his AG and 7th OA.

Kristin Marks, Kim Chan and Tracey Kuchma were in next for the team all with times very close to 53 minutes.  Kristin placed 3rd in her AG, Kim got 4th, and Tracey got 2nd!  Nice work girls!

Juan had a solid 10K of 56 minutes placing just within the top 10 of his AG.

Heidi was in next for the team with a very solid time well under 59 minutes.  This allowed her to comfortably win her AG!
