2015 Hamilton Road2Hope

One of our final big goals for the 2015 season was the Hamilton Road2Hope marathon and half marathon.  While the temperature was perfect, winds were very challenging, especially at the top of the escarpment.  The team powered through and still produced a collection of solid performances.

Full Marathon:
Our rankings

The winds were brutal for these guys, forcing some of our runners to fall of their pace and drop out.  There were 5 H+Pers who fought hard and finished with great results:

Just two weeks removed from his PB at STWM, RunnerRob ran very strong 2:38:18, good for 2nd OA and his second fastest marathon to date.

Luke, on little pure marathon training relied on his massive IM base to carry him to a very successful 3:06:38.

In her fist marathon ever, Emily Hunter ran an outstanding 3:21:04.

Howie and Manny treated this as a fun run, coming in with finishing times of 4:21 and 4:52 respectively

Half Marathon
Our Rankings

With a recent course change, this route was measured by officials to be 21.34 in the week following
the race.  While it's something that rarely happens at a race of this size, we sill had a great time and some solid results:

Coach Sean finished 7th OA with a time of 1:17:21.

Nick Burt, despite the extra distance ran an outstanding half marathon PB of 1:22:13.

Kailey Haddock had a strong run, and like Nick was able to finish with a strong 1:30:47 PB.

Holger ran his usual consistent pace, coming in with a 1:30:50 final time.

Gillian came in just behind Holger, running 1:31:23.

Dave was the 1:40 pace bunny for the race, and ran the perfect pace to finish the job, coming in just over 1:41 (which would have been 1:40 at 21.1).

Dragan was in next just behind Dave with his second best half ever: 1:44.

Team Rankings

Schuyler Schmidt had an outstanding last-minute race, finishing in 42:35 and second OA!

Danny Nakluski continues to improve, running a very strong 46:06 for a new PB.

Kirstin Marks posted yet another PB, coming in just behind Dan with a time of 46:38!

Onward to RememberRun!
