The season for the Thompson Rivers University WolfPack cross country team is literally ‘off and running’.

The team competed in the ‘Dirty Feet Race” at Kenna Cartwright Park on Sunday (Sept 23).

Both the TRU women and men ran five kilometers and swept their respective podiums.

Calum Carrigan (1st year, Kamloops, BC), Troy Morgan (2nd year, Alberta) and Liam McGrath (2nd year, Vernon, BC) were the top three male finishers.

Kendra Murray (2nd year, Whitehorse, YT), Zoey Painter (2nd year Whitehorse,YT) and Brooklyn Higgs (1st year, Squamish, BC) were the top three females to cross the line.

Says interim head coach Ryan Pidhirnak, “ All athletes performed well and look strong going into next weekend’s duel against UBCO.”
