Vancouver Race Walk Results

Vancouver was at her finest for the both the Vancouver Marathon and the Vancouver Race Walk this morning. The two events have been held simultaneous for the past 7 years, making Vancouver one of the hottest places for athletics endurance event variety on the planet.

Some very fine performances were logged by BC Junior female and male athletes in the 10km event. Katelynn Ramage produced a very strong 55:38 in her first ever attempt at the distance and Ben Thorne, last year’s surprise find, posted an astounding 47:00 in only his 2nd 10km race ever coming off of very limited road training due to the heavy snow this winter in his home town of Kitimat. A number of personal bests were delivered from other athletes across the age spectrum.

Canada’s top men’s 20km duo were unable to register a performance as Gomez pulled up lame at the start line due to a nagging heel irritation and Dunfee dropped from the race after a very solid 15km with a muscle cramp.
