The flagship 10k involved some talented fields. Congrats to Erin on her first ever 10k and to Robert on his first win in this event! Special mention to Amanda for coming within 0.xx seconds of the win. Some speedy times out there!

In the 5k, varsity Warrior Ronan won his first Run Waterloo event, and Robyn won this event for the second consecutive year.

Congrats to everyone in the 3k and 200m as well!

Race recap

Every Father’s Day since 1978, the running community gets together for a fun and festive 10k on the streets of Waterloo. It was great to see 26 parent-child teams competing today, as fathers (and mothers) teamed up with their kids for a fun family experience.

Whether like Erin this is your first 10k or like Aidan it’s your 38th Waterloo Classic, whether you’re new to town or your family participates en masse each year – thank you for making this race special.

Huge thanks also to Erin McClure – unable to race today, but nailing it on the mic!
