Runners head out at the start of the Oak Bay Zoot 10K on Sunday

Zoot sunshine holds its own

About 60 people participated in this year's race

Despite some neighbouring communities competing for participants, Phil Nicholls is happy with the turnout for the second Island Runner Zoot 10K road race Sunday morning.

“It was a good event, it was definitely what events used to be when I was younger – a low key community event,” said the organizer and owner of Island Runner. “It was supported well from the community to the Oak Bay Police.”

About 60 people participated.

“The people who did it had a lot of fun. A lot of local Oak Bay people did it,” he added. “It was a beautiful day and I couldn’t ask for much more.”

Kate Scallion came in top spot with a time of 39:15; Cheryl Nicholls came in second with a time of 39:54 and Phil Micholls ran in third with a time of 39:54.
