There was a bit of a nippy breeze, but that didn’t deter 13 runners from coming out to the Magnusson trails on Grey Mountain.

The course was just approximately 6.5  kilometres long and took runners on the scenic trails overlooking Riverdale before heading back towards Grey Mountain and the Bugaloo bike trails, winding back to the start.

Stephen Dynes was the first across the line with a time of 25:09.

Here are the results for the May 8th Sportslife Trail Run:
