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.

Haaheim won the Peak to Beak for the sixth time on Sunday, completing the course from Knox Mountain to Quail’s Gate Estate Winery in one hour three minutes 54 seconds.

Haaheim, who also served as co-chairman of the 31st annual race this year, finished more than 4 1/2 minutes ahead of second-place finisher Gary Wade (1:08:31).

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.
