Peak to Beak 18K - Kelowna

Skeets Morel (M20-29) of Vernon, made it two out of three in 2008 overall series wins, clocking a 1:04:49 to edge out Kelowna’s Trevour Haaheim (M35-39) by eleven seconds. For Trevour, who only owns trail shoes, (no trails, no Trevour) that makes three firsts and three seconds in this race in the past six years. Cameron Egan (M20-29) of Coldstream ran a close third in 1:05:22.

In the women’s division Gillian Moody (F30-34) of Kelowna, running her first series race since 2004, set a mark on this new course that will invite future challenge, finishing eighth overall in 1:12:20. Kelowna’s Danita Schreiber (F45-49) grabbed second, by a mere second (1:23:01) as she prevailed over Mary Edgar (F20-29) of Vernon.
