14566376_1016878611771500_1100508811836469390_oCongratulations to all participants who took part in the 2016 Sydenham Fall Trail Run today.

The weather was cool and sunny, with the trail in surprisingly good condition even after the heavy rains over the past few days. The gorgeous fall colours were on full display along the shoreline as well, making for a great day!

Clay Patterson won the men’s race in a fast time of 25:48 over the 8km course. Patterson gave Taylor Murphy’s course record (25:09) from 2007 a scare in the early going before a strong headwind over the final few km’s slowed him down. Jason Choi finished second for the second year in a row in a time of 26:59. Last year’s mens winner Cameron Bardwell, rounded out the top three in third place this year in 28:06. The top male masters runner was Savvas Frantzeskos in 30:22.

Paula Wiltse took home the women’s title this year after many years of trying and coming close. Wiltse’s winning time was 30:30. Susanne Garrett-Kerr was second in 32:28, followed by Maggie Scheurert in 33:18 for third. Lana Saunders was the top women’s masters runner in a time of 36:10.

Thank you to everyone who took part in the race, as well as a special thank you to all of our wonderful volunteers and sponsors.
