Local residents wrapped up the event with solid showings in their age categories

A few Stettler and Erskine residents competed in the first Alberta Master Games at Rocky Mountain House this past weekend. They tackled the 10km trail run at Crimson Lake. “This was our first trail run and we all placed fantastic in our age categories,” said Bea Brososky.

“Lots of hard work and determination took us to this level of competition. We all love running and have done a fair amount of races but never trail racing.

“We are very proud of our hard work, training and dedication,” she said, noting it was a hard and hilly race as well.

“Rocky Mountain House also put on a superb weekend of 12 sports venues, entertainment and fabulous food. There were also the opening and closing ceremonies, fireworks and a lot of great hospitality.”

As to standings, the results were as follows –

– Bea Brososky placed third in her category and received a bronze medal.

– Jack Brososky placed fourth in his category.

– Tannis Ball placed eighth in her category.

– Sheri Morbeck placed 12th in her category.

“All are new to trail racing and did great representing Stettler/Erskine.”
