And another successful race happened yesterday at the Takhini Hot Springs. We were first welcomed to a coffee at Cafe Balzam, then 2 teams ran the 7 km loop for the AWG qualifiers, followed by 13 teams on the 20 km loop, and finally everybody enjoyed the delicious food back at the cafe and a soak at the Hot Springs. The temperature was warm and the trail was fast, so interesting conditions to challenge the teams !

1. Lori Twedell, 19:45
2. Louve Twedell, 20:43
