Hometown runner Brad Lawlor won the 10-kilometre race that was part of Stettler’s Canada Day Family Fun Run on Sunday morning.

Lawlor, a 2010 graduate of William E. Hay Composite High School, clocked a winning time of 43 minutes and 27 seconds. Second-place finisher Joel Norman had a time of 44:04.

The women’s champion was Connie McArthur, who placed fifth overall with a 48:56 showing.

There were 33 runners in the 10-kilometre field.

“We had a total of 115 runners (overall) this year, up 22 from last year,” said race director CJ Oprea. “It was our largest turnout yet.”

“Next year, we will have a new course and will be adding a three-kilometre event.”

The winner of the five-kilometre race was Kent Barritt, with a time of 22:21. The women’s champion was third-place finisher Alyssa Henderson, with a 24:30 clocking.

James Switenky (23:43) was the runner-up in the five-kilometre event.

In the one-kilometre race, Gavin McQuaid (4:26) was the overall and boys’ champion, while Emily Barritt (5:11) took the girls’ crown.

The big winner Sunday was the Heartland Youth Centre, as the event raised $350 for the centre, Oprea said.
