(North Vancouver) Perfect conditions greeted racers this morning as they set out for the 16th annual Seek the Peak, with its awe-inspiring climb from West Vancouver’s Ambleside Park to the Peak of Vancouver. This year’s event saw almost 700 participants take on the 13-kilometre course as individuals or as part of a relay team, with every step upwards raising valuable funds for the BC Cancer Foundation’s lifesaving work in the fight against breast cancer.
This year’s Seek the Peak title goes to Andrew Russell with a time of 1:24:49 and topping the women’s category is Chantelle Groenewoud with a time of 1:51:33.
