Grind outruns storm (now that's speed)

By Contributor
September 11th, 2012

The storm held off long enough to have perfect weather for the annual Golden City Grind run on Sunday. 74 runners participated in the kids’ 1K run, the 5K run and the gruelling 10K run — it’s called the Grind for a reason! 


Winners received fabulous chocolate gold medals from Trish at Mountain Nugget, while second and third place finishers received yummy cookie medals from Becky at Sweet Dreams Cakery. All runners received a frozen yogurt coupon from Bear Country Kitchen. Everyone refuelled on oranges from Ferraro Foods and delicious cookies from the Alpine Grind. Draw prizes and t-shirts were donated by Gerick Sports in Trail and the Alpine Grind. 


All proceeds from the race go to skier development at Black Jack. 

Thanks so much to all our great sponsors. Keep running, and we’ll see you all next year!
