Despite wind and rain, over 50 participants showed up to participate in the 2014 Morell Fun Run on Saturday morning.
The race was divided into three parts, a 1k walk, a 5k run, and a 10k run. Proceeds from the event are being donated to wards the traveling costs for a grade 10 Morell High School student who was diagnosed with Granulomatosis with Polyangiitis, a rare disease that causes blood vessels and other tissue to become inflames, limiting blood flow to the body.
Organizer Tyler Read worked with the school’s leadership class and the PEI Roadrunner’s Association to make the event a success.
“This is our first year doing this race, but I hope it will become an annual event,” Mr Read said.
“We’ve got a great turnout, no one should get overheated while running and it’s all for a great cause.”
Number 75, 44-year-old Chad Lewis of Marshfield was the first 5k racer to cross the finish line with a time of 21:28. He said it was the first race he’s done in two years, but was happy with his performance.
Number 801, 17-year-old Mackenzie Turnbull of Elgin, Ontario was the next across the line with a time of 21:53.
Number 803, 16-year-old Ian Sly of Elgin, Ontario place third with a time of 23:09. Both Mr Turnbull and Mr Sly are exchange students from Ontario currently attending Morell High.
Number 279, 10-year-old Sophie Peterson of Charlottetown was the first female to complete the 5k event with a time of 23:51.
In the 10k race, number 802, 31-year-old Stanley Chaisson of Bear River took first place with a time of 35:31.
Number 837, 23-year-old Mitchell Visser of Orwell placed second with a time of 42:04.
Number 13, 55-year-old Gary Simmonds of Morell finished third with a time of 42:27.
Number 281, 36-year-old Jocelyn Peters of Charlottetown was the first female to complete the 10k run with a time of 52:16. Her 9 month old daughter Alice completed the race with her mother and never even needed to open her eyes.
A breakfast and gathering was held at the school once the race had finished. Participants were treated to door prizes and all the liquid they could drink.

Islanders In Boston - What... no live blogging??!!



We have live blogged the results of Prince Edward Islanders at the Boston Marathon since this blog began in 2007. These are the final pages, (after being updated non-stop with each runner's updated split times throughout the day), of those years:

 
2012 - 2011 - 2010 - 2009 - 2008 - 2007 

This year that streak comes to an end. We'll be there!

This will be a sort of practice run for us, a chance to get a feel for Boston and the Boston Marathon before Alex gets his chance to run it, having qualified for the 2015 Boston Marathon at our Prince Edward Island Marathon here in October. On Saturday morning, Alex, along with 9,999 others, will be running the BAA 5K. The real challenge will be for Alex and I not to lose each other.... Wish us luck!

Here's the list of all of PEI's qualified and registered runners in the 2014 Boston Marathon on Monday. Billy MacDonald and Rob MacKenzie are injured and will not be running (and perhaps some others?) Wish them luck!

Here are the 5K runners:


If you're not in Boston on Marathon Day,

Live tracking should be available Race Day on

from our boston trip will be put in this album:

Safe travels & best wishes to all our PEI runners!
