Bear Creek Cross Country

A much nicer day that the previous weekend greeted runners at Bear Creek Park for the third of the BC Cross-country series events.

Ruby Forsyth and Chloe Symon fought it out with the eventual winner to finish a close 2nd and 3rd place respectively in the age 8 race. Susanna Mattman finished a strong 6th place in the nine year old race. Maya Baechler literally ran away with the 10 year old title. Sophie Forsyth matched her sister's placing in her 11 year old race; leading teammates Finley Butler (6th) and Sophie Kazimirski (9th) to the finish line. Victoria Haussmann ran well in her first race to finish 13th. Makenna Baechler finished strongly over the last kilometer to come in 8th in the 12 year old race. Christian Petersen and Theo Bentley had solid runs to finish 6th and 7th in the boys 13 year old race.

Once again the parent trio of Stephen Symons, and Gavin and Sara Forsyth took to the trails to finish 1st, 2nd and 4th in their respective age group categories.

Next up is the South Surrey meet at Crescent Park.
