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.

Other age group winners were:

• Female—Ashley Yip (U-20) 1:45:42; 1:35:46; Nicole Heffner (35-39) 1:47:10; Kari Bailey (40-44) 1:39:30; Sally Stewart (45-49) 1:38:24; Kim Jollymore (50-54) 1:47:43; Kirsten Barrowman (55-59) 1:55:37; and Diane Leonard (60-79) 1:59:59.

• Male—Peter Baumeister (U20) 1:24:23; Roger Sherwood (20-24) 1:31:13; Vincent Denis (40-44); Christopher Wilson (45-49) 1:26:31; Bill Mah (1:30:53); Chris Charbonneau (55-59) 1:37:48; and Harvey Beselt (60-79) 1:49:58.

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.

On the women’s side the top three 10 K runners were also from Kelowna. They are Lisa Vinge (45:45), Pascal Li (46:57) and Corinne Wade (47:26).

The Relay Race was won by the 21K Beer Run, featuring team members Scott Landsiedel, Ben Lees, Jack Meenaghan, Jim Stewart and Josh Teather.
