Sherbino, Symonds tops at Campus to Campus

Annual race another success

A little snow and some wet pavement wasn’t enough to stop Keddi-Anne Sherbino from running away with the women’s title at the 2011 Campus to Campus Half Marathon.

The Kelowna runner—who won the 2010 Okanagan Marathon—finished the 21.1 km course at Okanagan College in one hour 21 minutes 41 seconds.

Vernon runners Mary Edgar (1:34:09) and Jennifer Bond (1:35:46) came in second and third, respectively, in the women’s race.

In the men’s half marathon, Penticton’s Jeff Symonds showed the way in 1:15:42.

Kelowna’s Graham Hood was second in 1:17:11, with Rossland’s Dallas Cain 40 seconds back of Hood in third.

In the 10 K race three Kelowna runners swept the top three spots in the men’s division. Jonathan Little won with a time of 37:12, Yannick Letailleur finished second with 38:10 and Aurelien Schilles earned a bronze with a 39:48 finish.
