VFAC at the 2012 PRR “First Half” Half Marathon, Vancouver, BC

Scroll down to content

Yesterday the Pacific Road Runners hosted the 23rd “First Half” Half Marathon in Vancouver, BC. As a member of VFAC (Vancouver Falcons Athletic Club) I could not help but be inspired by the great performanaces of the “Blue Team”. In many cases personal bests were set, age group categories won, age group records set. In other cases members persevered through the proverbial “hard day” or muscle cramps. Whatever their personal result, all of the runners were winners and were supported on the course by our Coach John Hill and by many other VFAC members who weren’t running that day. Below is a selection of my photos from yesterday (hopefully I didn’t miss anyone). In a couple of days more photos will “appear” on Flickr but first I will be working on the video.

ps. I’m a bit “cross-eyed” right now so a few minor edits may still occur. If you ran a PB or your time is wrong or I missed you please let me know and I will adjust the post. I still have more photos so if you aren’t showing here I may still “find” you.

  1. Good Job Blue train excellent photos. I’m on a return to training soon after the Bangkok Marathon will race a triathlon March 18th in Rayong Thailand. I wish I was part of the blue train to but in my heart I’m There

  2. Wonderful collection of photos, Rick! It helped me match faces to some VFAC names I’ve heard of but haven’t met personally.
