2016 OMA Sunnybrook 8K Results

October 16, 2016 - Sunnybrook Park, Toronto

Mike Gill increasing his lead approaching halfway.


For the second year in a row, Mike Gill competed in the OMA Sunnybrook 8KM XC race.  This year conditions were less than ideal with the recent rain making the ground, muddy and soft which meanst Mike was unlikely to break the M35 course record he set last year. It was another race where Mike kept things comfortable for the first couple of kilometers with a group then took the lead and never looked back. He just kept growing that lead over the remainder of the course and crossed the finish line in 27:33 and never recieved any challenge throughout the race.  Mike finished first overall based on finishing time and his 77.96% age-grading was 7th highest on the day.

The Ontario Masters Athletics has some well organized Masters events for Indoor, Outdoor and Cross Country where you can run different distances along with a great group of people! Contact us if you are interested in running track or cross country.  The next race is Athletics Ontario Cross Country Championships at Fireman's Park in Niagara on November 13.
