Louise Oram wins Vancouver's 30 mile KneeKnacker trail race

Louise Oram, national team member, was the fastest female in the yesterday's Knee Knacker - a 30 mile trail race in North Vancouver. This trail run is a challenging 30-mile foot race along the Baden-Powell Centennial Trail from Horseshoe Bay to Deep Cove. Runners climb 8,000 feet and descend another 8,300 feet in the process.

This was Louise's first ultra-distance trail race. She finished in 5:41:19, 5 seconds ahead of #2. Here's a video of the sprint to the finish. You can read her race report on her training log.

And a shout out to orienteer, Brian May, of Salmon Arm who was 6th overall in the race - in a time of 5:39:11. Not bad for an old guy :-) Brian told me that he was very happy not to get run down by Louise as he was fading fast towards the end.
