The 19th Annual Women’s Fall challenge saw 541 women of all ages and abilities complete the event. The oldest was 87 and the youngest, four delightful six-year-olds. Organizer Cathy Walsh said this year there were more out-of-towners than ever before, including 14 members of the Tsihqot’in Tribal Council in the Chilcotin and women from Whitehorse, Yukon. She also said many participants mentioned the tremendous enthusiasm generated by the volunteers on bikes, staffing signs and watering stations and all along the route. “It was a wonderful mix of serious athletes and those having a good time for a good cause and it was a glorious day,” Walsh added. Those looking for individual results can visit Stride and Glide’s website or look for the link on the WFC website.
