Peter Skene Ogden teachers Crystal Dawn Langton and Tracy Moore competed in the Vancouver Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon on Oct. 23.

Both runners achieved personal bests in the race that attracted 3,000 participants, Moore says.

It was my second Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon. My goal entering was one hour and 45 minutes, but I managed to clock in at one hour and 43 minutes.”

It was Langton’s first Rock ‘n’ Roll half marathon. While her goal was two hours and 12 minutes, she managed to complete the run in two hours and four minutes.

I would like to see more women runners,” Moore says, reflecting upon her time running in 100 Mile House and her own race experience.

Although the Vancouver race is for-profit, a portion of its earnings goes to charity. This year’s money went to St. Jude’s Hospital in Vancouver.

As stated on its website, the philosophy of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon series is to make running fun.

The race is hosted all over the world. Rock ‘n’ Roll races this year are scheduled in Los Angeles, Philadelphia and Montreal, as well as Dublin and Madrid.
