Results, Report, & Pictures- Trillium 10k (Mount Forest)

The Trillium 10k was held earlier today in Mount Forest, Ontario. A dozen skaters started the race despite wet & slick road conditions.

This year’s event featured a new course. Skaters encountered a number of turns in the opening and closing kilometers of the race. The route led skaters out of Mount Forest to a tight U turn and then back into town.

The U turn featured the customary bag-pipe player, who each year, entertains athletes by playing music at the turn-around.

10km Overall [Full results here (or search here)]
1- Peter Doucet
2- Morgan Williams
3- Herb Gayle
4- Travis Shaw
5- Morgane Echardour
6- Leo Frusteri
7- Sarah Hopkins
8- Melissa Mass
9- Eric Maas
10- Randy Domm
11- John Tollefsrud
12- Avery Reeves

Morgane Echardour was the top female finisher, about 1/2 minute ahead of Sarah Hopkins. Both Echardour and Hopkins skated with nasty shin pain because of the slick roads and the parts of the course that had rougher asphalt.

Morgan Williams took a small lead at the start of the race. I bridged the gap, skated with him and Herb Gayle for a couple of km’s and then pulled away. I ended up crossing the finish line unchallenged to collect the win. Note that my time should be 30-seconds faster; they had me finish on the wrong side of the road, so I had to go back and skate over the timing mat for the timing system to register my result.  Morgan Williams and Herb Gayle came in 1 1/2 minutes later to collect 2nd and 3rd place.

Avery Reeves was Mount Forest’s  resident competitor as well as the youngest skater in the race. She clocked a time of 30:28.
