Two age-group course records and plenty of personal-best times highlighted the Frontrunners Island Race Series event Feb. 9 in Cedar.
“The conditions for the Cedar 12K road race were nothing short of ideal – cool and very little wind, and a sun that even peeked at us for brief moments,” said John Durkin, race director, in a press release.
Logan Roots of the Prairie Inn Harriers won the race in 40 minutes, 33 seconds, with another Victoria competitor, Claire Morgan, winning the women’s race in 44:44.
