The weather was fantastic for the 18th annual Loon Lake Race (at Inland Lake, Powell River). Morning fog lifted just before the 11am start, leaving the glassy waters of the lake to reflect brilliant fall sunshine. Temperature was in the 14-17 degree range, with no wind — perfect. 38 people did the 'wait and see' registration, bringing total numbers to 109 by start time. Winners of the out-and-back 7k were Lawrence Behan (30:21) and Dena Collings (34:37). Graham Cocksedge blasted around the 13k route in just 45:13 (course record TBC), while Inge Tholen was first woman and 5th overall in 56:24.
