Cramping and tired, Anna Koevot, a plucky member of the Crowsnest Consolidates High School (CCHS) running team handily finished the third leg of the grueling Sinister 7.
“It was the hardest thing I’ve ever done and it feels awesome to finish,” she said. “I’m going to go sit in the river.”
Through stifling heat, torrential rain, thunder, lightning and darkness the inspiring participants of the eight annual Sinister 7 Ultra + Relay showed what can be accomplished when you put one foot in front of the other.
The CCHS team placed 22nd overall, not bad for a bunch of teenagers. Emily Manzer ran the first leg, and then Noah Schuh, Koevot, Reece Brown, Simon Burke and siblings Christian and Jonathan Wadstein finished off the race.
The Pass’ very own Crowsnest Mountain Ladies was the first all female team to finish, beating out many talented runners and finishing in 17 hours and 40 minutes. The team is made up of Jackie Ham-Woodman, Kathy Yanco, Laurie Huska, Christine Misseghers, Shirlene Gietz and Tracy Wakaluk.
