Track and Field
MASTERS WORLD RELAY RECORD
On March 11, four BC Athletics and Tri City Greyhounds track and field
club members broke the Masters indoor world record for the 4x400 metre
relay in the men's 60 year-old age group. Tony Badowski, age 65 of Port
Coquitlam, John Winfield, age 61 of Tsawwassen, Sewa Birring, age 62 of
Surrey and Harold Morioka, age 65 of Surrey, set a new indoor world record
for the 1600 metre relay race in 4:13.30. The previous record was 4:14.76
set by the USA in 2005.
None of the team members had ever run in an indoor relay race before.
For John and Sewa, it was their first ever race indoors. Tony had his
first indoor race only a month earlier, also in Kamloops. Harold has raced
indoors many times but never on a relay team. In 2003, at the World
Masters Championships, Tony and Harold ran on the Canadian M60 4x400 metre
relay team that won the gold medal in the outdoor championships in
Carolina, Puerto Rico. Their time of 4:07.74 stands as the Canadian M60
4x400 metre outdoor relay record.
The team raced in the Tournament Capital Centre, the new sports complex
in Kamloops, BC, which just won the bid to host the next World Masters
indoors track and field championships in 2010. They ran in a special
invitational race which was a preview for the Kamloops Elementary Schools
relay meet. With 600 screaming students cheering them on, the team was
able to break the indoor world record by 1.46 seconds. Originally they
were going to attempt to break this record a month earlier in Kamloops, in
the first ever indoor track and field meet to be held in British Columbia.
However due to an injury and sickness to team members, this attempt was
Kamloops then invited the team to race just prior to the elementary
students’ relays. Several Kamloops newspapers and the local television
station covered the race.
Given a second chance to break the world record, the team didn’t
disappoint the race organizers nor the very loud and supporting students.
However it wasn’t easy for the team. Tony had strained a calf muscle
preparing for this race and told his teammates he wasn’t sure if he
could finish his leg of the relay. Despite the pain he ran a great opening
leg. John ran the second leg and put the team in position for the record.
John was in Mexico a few weeks earlier and had scraped his legs when he
fell on slippery rocks at the beach. Sewa who had no sleep all night
because of hiccups wasn’t sure if he had the strength to run a strong
race. He did. His hiccups stopped on the ride up to Kamloops, only three
hours before the race. Finally Harold, who had pulled a hamstring muscle
six weeks earlier, took the baton for the final leg. With the support of
the cheering students, Harold crossed the finish line and the clock
stopped with a new Masters Indoor World Record for the M60 4x400 metres

Penticton Lakeside Resort 5K
Many close finishes in today’s race. Only twenty-two seconds
separated the first five men and in the women’s division, it was closer
yet, with the first five crossing the line just sixteen seconds apart.
For the women, it was Chantelle Deacon (F16-19) of Vernon taking top
spot in 19:29, ten seconds faster than her last year’s second place
finish. Tracey Pope (F40-44) of Naramata was second in 19:35. Women’s
front runner, Shannon Thompson (F20-29) of Kelowna, lost out in the final
few clocking in at 19:37 followed closely by Cindy Rhodes (F50-54) of
Kelowna (19:40) and Stacey Butterfield of Penticton (F30-34) in 19:45.
First place overall went to a ‘new kid on the block’ Theodore Hunt
(M20-29) of Vancouver, but now attending university in Kelowna. His 16:41
finish was just two ticks ahead of Penticton’s Tom Evans (M40-44) with
Tom just three seconds better than Greg Johnson’s of Vernon (M30-34)
16:47 third place finish. Kelowna’s Connor Clerke (M16-19) 16:57 and
Rory Switzer (M45-49) 17:03 were fourth and fifth.
Another close finish was in the men’s 60-64 category where Jack
Wessel and Ellis Andrews ran stride for stride for the last mile with only
one second separating them at the finish. The younger of the two prevailed
in a time of 19:30. Third place in that category went to Ed Ansems of
Terrace who finished in 19:40.
Harry’s Spring Run-Off 8K
A record 1029 registered participants enjoyed dry weather this year at
the second annual Harry's Spring Run-Off 8k to fight Prostate Cancer. The
lack of rain was greatly appreciated by the organizers, volunteers and
sponsors as well. Ryan McKenzie of Windsor, Ontario took home $1000 and
the men's title while Calgary's Lisa Harvey repeated as women's overall
winner, also pocketing $1000. VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation was the
biggest winner of the day with over $130,000 raised for prostate cancer
Ryan Hayden of Richmond, last year's winner, blasted off the start line
at a pace he couldn't maintain, soon to be overtaken by McKenzie. The
Ontarian took command for the rest of the race, gradually pulling ahead
and cruising to a 23:40 finish. Behind him, Hayden held off a determined
chase by Vancouver's Jerry Ziak and Langley's Steve Osaduik who battled
for third spot for the entire 8 km—taking turns surging, each one unable
to shake off the other. Ziak finally prevailed with a late sprint for the
finish. He and Osaduik recorded a quicker final 1km split than McKenzie or
Hayden, just not quite fast enough to move into second. Fifth and final
cash prize spot was claimed by Victoria's Steven Murenbeeld.
The women's race was led from start to finish in 28:05 by defending
champion Harvey, who is currently preparing for the World Cross-Country
Championships in Scotland at the end of the month. Chasing her around the
seawall was Whistler's Kristina Rody, who finished half a minute back for
the silver. Like in the men's race, third place was hotly contested, with
masters competitor Nancy Tinari of Coquitlam edging Rachel Ruus of
Richmond. Ruus collapsed after crossing the finish line, but recovered in
time for the awards ceremony later. New Westminster's Joan McGrath rounded
out the top five while taking second in the masters competition. Third
female master was Britni Bark, over 3 minutes behind McGrath.
In the men's masters race, Warren McCulloch of Coquitlam ran a strong
26:57 for 12th overall, over 40 seconds clear of Kevin O'Connor and a
minute up on Bertrand Plouvier, both of Vancouver.
Synergy Health Management Ltd. Bazan Bay 5K
The 7th annual Bazan Bay 5K, reverted back to the popular Lochside
Drive course of 2006 after an experiment last year with a downtown loop of
the business community of Sidney. The race is hosted by Team West Coast
and, prior to 2002, it was an 8K event. The overall race winners were
Andrew Russell, from the National Triathlon Centre, in 15:17, and IRRs
Marilyn Arsenault, in 17:21, breaking Joan McGrath's master's course
record set last year by 20 seconds. Ian Hallam was second, in 15:26,
following his first-ever victory at the Cedar 12K one month ago. Eric
Findlay was third, in 15:29, following his 1/100th of a second victory two
weeks ago at the Hatley Castle 8K. Kyla Coates was second female, in
17:56, lowering the junior women's course record by 5 seconds. Jen MacLean
returned to racing after a two month period of illness and injury to
finish 3rd at Bazan Bay, in 18:04. Honourable mention goes to Brian Connon,
who broke Bill Hollingshead's M60 record of 18:36 by 11 seconds with his
new record time of 18:25.
