4 crazy Human Powered Racing athletes, one coach, once sibling and one alumni took part in the 29th running of the Gunner Shaw trail race at Thetis Lake this past weekend. In what is surely one of the hardest 9 (we like to call it 10) kilometer races out there, runners were challenged with slick, muddy single track trails that were never on flat terrain. To add to the challenge TWO long stretches of ice cold muddy water had to be crossed which rendered runners legs frozen. This was all before the final 60m of the course which took runners waist deep through Thetis Lake. A great time was had by all, including Richard Wey who chose this race as his FIRST ever 10km running race.
