The Peak to Beak is already Trevor Haaheim’s favourite race of the year.

The fact that the 41-year-old is a multiple winner of the 18 km run is simply an added bonus.

Kelowna’s Owen Harrison was third in 1:09:08.

Gary Wade’s spouse, Dannica Wade, won the women’s race, placing 21st overall in 1:23:10. Tiffany Fowler was second among women in 1:24:42.
