Wolves Athletics Club runner Hayden Hollowell defended his DHT Press Run 10 km title on Saturday. Hollowell bolted out to an early lead and never looked back, stopping the clock in 35:05, 12 seconds better than his winning time in 2013. Peace River’s Ken Wurst placed second, 4.5+ plus minutes behind.
Mirelle Martens also topped the podium in her first-ever road race. The 18 year old St Joe’s student won the women’s 10 km event, and placed 4th overall, in a time of 41:11. Wolves team mate Kirsten Manz placed third among the 10 km women.
In the women’s half marathon event, it was a Wolves Alumni sweep as Heather Tangen (2005), Kayla Hardy (2011-13), and Stephanie Murphy (2012) went 1-2-3. Grande Prairie’s Darin Hunter won the men’s half marathon.
