The 2016 Big Dog Convenience/Irving Night Dash, held on the beautiful The Mount Property, went off without a hitch on Friday evening despite the down pour on Friday afternoon. The event saw over 80 runners and walkers participate in either a 5 Km or or 10 Km race in the dark! All runners were wearing glow sticks, head lamps and neon shirts…they were a sight you couldn’t miss on the streets of Charlottetown. While the event is a “fun run”, prizes were awarded to the top three runners (Male/Female) in each category. The top runners from this year’s event were:
5 KM- Female 5 Km- Male
1. Raeona Lacey 1. Todd MacAusland
2. Brennah Stairs 2. Greg MacAusland
3. Christine Gauthier 3. Jeff Cook
10 Km- Female 10 Km- Male
1. Melissa Murray 1. Kevin Stairs
2. Jessica Frizzel 2. Alan Easton
3. Bethany Doyle 3. Dan Petit
Following the race, runners enjoyed a BBQ put on by the Parkdale Sherwood Lions Club and a cold beverage!
This event could not have been possible without the support of our amazing volunteers. We had over 40 volunteers lend a helping hand on Friday evening…over 25 of those volunteers where lined up along the Confederation Trail providing light for runners and offering words of encouragement! Special thanks to all those who volunteered!
