Oliver Half Iron/ Goddess 5k

Sandy Wilson, Kara Hobby and Nadine Naughton at the finish of the Goddess 5k race

While many of the Human Powered Racing team were volunteering and helping put on the Victoria Youth Triathlon we did have a few athletes racing around the province.

Daphne Dobko-Walsh and Justin Martin were back in the Okanagan a week after the Challenge camp to race the Oliver Half Iron. Daphne decided to make the trip just a couple of days before the event and went on to have a fantastic race winning her age group in a time of 6:13. Justin was out to avenge his 2015 DNF at this race when temperatures soared into the upper 30’s. Justin won his age group (65-69) and persevered in conditions (a high of 43 degrees was reached) that made last years event look cool by comparison.

Meanwhile in Langford, Kara Hobby was racing to a second place finish in the Goddess 5k while Sandy Wilson was pacing her sister Nadine Naughton to a great finish in a race that also had some very warm conditions.

Congratulations to everyone on another great weekend for Human Powered Racing.
