VANCOUVER, September 15th. Reigning Canadian Marathon champion Trevor Hofbauer comfortably won the sixth annual Under Armour Eastside 10K today ahead of a record 3,200 participants. The top four men ran in a tight group until the 4-kilomtre mark before Adam Visokay, fourth place finisher, trailed off. Hofbauer took the lead ahead of second place finisher Lucas Bruchet and third place finisher Justin Kent , where he remained for the duration of the race.
“I felt strong out there from start to finish,” said Trevor. “Luke and Justin are fast guys so I wanted to make sure I maintained a good pace throughout the race.
On the Women’s side, it was Natasha Wodak who took her second victory at Eastside. Natasha, who is the course record holder, ran a great race alongside previous winner Leslie Sexton who finished in second place. Natasha took the lead at the half way mark and never looked back.
