Runners bolt from the starting line in the Tyke girls race at last week's Districtwide cross-country run in Port McNeill.

Run & Fun

The annual Districtwide cross-country run for elementary school students dominated by Port Hardy runners.

PORT McNEILL—The annual Districtwide cross-country run for elementary school students was moved from Sointula to Port McNeill, and dominated by Port Hardy runners.

Even a mishap resulting from a wrong turn did nothing to diminish the medal haul for Port Hardy runners after cougar sightings on Malcolm Island prompted organizers to move the event to Port McNeill’s Sunset Elementary School.

The Harris family of Fort Rupert Elementary collected two victories in very different fashion. Madyson Harris bolted to the front and won the peewee girls race by a minute-and-a-half. Sister Kaleigh moved up through the pack and had to overtake Sunset’s Hope McClendon on the final straightaway to clinch the bantam girls win.

Jaylon Grenier of Eagle View won the bantam boys race, which resulted in two blue ribbons. Teammate Steven Williamson cross the line first, but had taken a wrong turn and cut about two minutes off his run. He placed third and was given an honorary blue ribbon for sportsmanship.

Faith Gage of Avalon Academy won the tyke girls race.

Sunset runners, with Joey Grant  and Rhys Dutcyvich won the boys tyke and peewee races.
