Erin Mutrie (51:58) and Luke Robin (41:43) sped their way through the damp North Coast conditions Saturday to win the female and male 10 km race, at the 31st Annual Crest Glory Days.

The five km walk and five/10 km run event went off without a hitch this weekend, thanks to all participants and event organizers, Jamie Wessel and Crystal Sawatzky.

In addition to Mutrie, the top female for the five km run was Leigh Anne Magnusson (23:59) and the top male in the five km run was Lindsay Smith (21:22).

Everyone’s eyes were also on Gregory Malcolm who finished strong with a time of 26:02.

This year’s group featured 105 participants and despite the conditions, Wessel said it was a grand time to be out.

“We were a little bit worried about the weather. It was Crystal’s and my first time organizing it. The event went so well and the awards ceremony went well afterwards too,” she said.

“Of course in the afternoon, the sun came out, but it still felt like a success. Many of the participants were Rupert Runners from the 13-week Learn to Run program which saw the program’s completion with this event. It was awesome to see.”

This event leads into the 15th Annual Skeena River Relay on June 4.

That event is completely filled up, with all 30 teams signed up for the 142 km five to 10-person relay.
