Race results are up!
Overall winners are as follows:

5km male: Patrick Clark 21:00
5km female Shauna Flynn 24:23
10km male: Nick Moore 46:55
10km female Lindsay Byers (4-time champ!) 49:40

Also worth mentioning, after the turn around point, the runner's were up against 40-50 km/ hr winds and sleet in sub-freezing weather. Very respectable times given the conditions!

One last very special mention to our most "passionate" competitor, Marlene Samuelson, who refused to switch to the 5km, despite the weather conditions. As she was crossing the finish-line, she was proclaiming: "I never quit!", and also asking " where's the beer?". True story....
