Times Colonist 10k Run

The youngster checking his time above must be one of the youngest competitors in this year's Times Colonist 10k run but there were runners of every age and ability in this mini-marathon on Sunday morning. The Times Colonist, our local newspaper, in publication since the 1850's, has been sponsoring this race for the last 20 years to raise money for charities. This year they raised money for the Heart and Stroke Foundation and for children's literacy programs through their "Raise-a-Reader" program. While the child above may not be the youngest, the gentleman crossing the finish line on the right, at 80 years old, is almost certainly the oldest runner, but everyone who particpated can be proud to have done so.

The young lad seems to be in a world of his won. Good on him!
Beautiful capture.

A 10K is a pretty daunting run. You've caught the energy of the race very well!

I like that picture of the boy. So serious looking. I imagine it would be fun taking part of a marathon like that.
