Rainier 2 Ruston, SoCal Wine Country Wmn’s 5k & 70.3 Victoria

The 16th Annual Rainier to Ruston is a 50 Mile Relay from Mount Rainier to Tacoma’s waterfront, where you’re invited to “commemorate the old railroad by passing through bell standards in each town on the way to the sea.” Starting at the Carbon River entrance in Mt. Rainier National Park and finishing at Marine Park on Ruston Way, the course passes through deep and gorgeous forests, alongside rushing rivers and streams, and through historic Washington towns. Driven by the non profit Foothills Rails to Trail Coalition, all proceeds go towards maintaining the trail system used during the race. Hazel competed for Team GRRLS; together they took 2nd in the Open Women’s 6-Person team category.
RESULTS!In Temecula, on a Bachelorette trip for her dear friend, Courtney ran the SoCal Wine Country Women’s 5k. The race also hosts a half marathon and both distances take place at Vail Lake Resort. The 5k was an out and back with rollers that take racers along Vail Lake. Three of the bachelorette party members including the Bride herself swept the race in 1st through 3rd with Courtney taking 1st. Host of the event, Off Road Pursuits threw down an incredible after-race party with sandwiches, endless wine, fruit, essential oils and sunbathing. The awards were rad – with wine and swag. RESULTS!At the 70.3 Victoria, Leighton and David’s first official Half Ironman of the year, Leighton was 3rd in his Division and 31st M (4:30:31) and David was 2nd in his Division and 17th M (4:20:09). Breaking it down a bit, the Swim Course took place in Elk Lake, the Bike Course was a single loop that began at Hamsterly Beach; racers rode through four municipalities and had stunning views of Haro Strait, the Coastal Mountains and Saanich Inlet. The Run Course took place back at Elk Lake, which hosts 10km of trails that follow the shores of the lake through wooded parkland.  Full results can be found HERE! The 70.3 Victoria is just the first in a string of Tri’s these two are set to do – next up for Leighton – the Padden Triathlon on June 23rd; and for David – Ironman Coeur d’Alene 70.3 on June 24th.
