Royal City’s Cross Country Runners Begin the 2012 Season With Fine Effort

The RCTF squad was at The Pinetree Classic Race this past Saturday September 15th at Mundy Park in Coquitlam. A beautifully warm and sunny day greeted Royal City’s XC squad to kick off an eventful running day. In their 2.5km race, freshmen runners Shea Janke and Grace Fetherstonehaugh had a great first time out with Shea taking 2nd place in the 11 year old boys group and Grace coming in 4th place for her girls age group.

Veteran club runner, Jeremy Belcher, came in 3rd place right behind Shea in the same group. Other veteran runner, 13 year old Emily Chilton, came in a very strong 4th place in her 3.5km race.

Ian Hunter, Emmanuel Dadson and Michelle Dadson gave good strong efforts with Ian finishing 8th, Emmanuel 9th and Michelle 12th place for their age groups.

The Royal City XC Teams’ next event is 22nd September at Bear Creek Park in Surrey.
