The conditions were perfect for a fast race at the Cedar 12K.

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.

Cheryl Davies won the women’s masters race in 48:29 and Hugh Trenchard was the masters men’s winner in 43:06.

Bridget Cameron set a course record in the girls’ under-15 age category, crossing the finish line in 51:27, and Roslyn Smith set a record for women 65-69 in 55:27.

A total of 418 runners finished the Cedar 12K. The fourth stop on the eight-race series is the Hatley Castle 8K in Victoria on Feb. 23.
