2017 Race Director Challenge Results!

The Race Director Challenge was imagined as a fun opportunity to gather Race Directors together to enjoy a run, raise some money for a good cause, and then have an opportunity to socialize after the event and share ideas.  The rains of July 1st put a damper on the post race socializing, but the run? Went off fabulously, and over a thousand dollars was raised for the Terry Fox Foundation by these caring race directors! (funds donated in the name of a Race/Race Director, plus the full amount of their registration fee, shaved one second per dollar off that Race Directors time in the rankings)

Nancy Holland was far away the class of the field with over three hundred seconds off her finish time. Paula-Lynn Duke, Andy Drouin, Stacy Chesnutt, and Paula James all put in strong showings.  Notice too, just how many on that list are women!  🙂



Here are the adjusted times for the first annual Race Directors Challenge:

Race & Race Director:     Adjusted Time:
Windsor 5km Fun Run (Paula James) 0:38:05
Dartmouth Natal Day Road Race (Dave Nevitt) 0:41:06
Penguin Run (Mike Juurlink) 0:43:16
Sole Sisters Women’s Race Series (Stacy Chesnutt) 0:55:14
Run for One Sight (Danny Nolan) 0:57:08
Rum Runners Relay (Nancy Holland) 0:57:09
Cobequid Trail Run (Craig Burgess) 0:58:54
Hillside 2 Haiti 5K (Paula-Lynn Duke) 1:05:24
Ocean Breeze Trail Run (Andy Drouin) 1:48:12

We had another 6 that couldn’t join us on site, but who contributed to the total raised:
Valley Harvest Marathon (Susan Carbyn)
Eastern Lobster Run (Angie Tavares)
Moose Run 25K (Tom Harmes)
Beans & Bangers (Sean Dixon)
Frostbite 5-Miler (Tim Duguay)
Run Our Shore (Steve Burns)

– ok, to be fair, Tim & Sean were on site, but were a little busy that day!  😉

We’ll plan to do this again next year, but maybe there is an opportunity to host the Race Directors discussion part this Fall with the Run Nova Scotia AGM & Banquet?
