Duncan duo excels at MOMAR

Bruce and Zoe Berkey finished second in their category in the gruelling Atmosphere Mind Over Mountain Adventure Race at Cumberland.

The Duncan-based father and daughter team of Bruce and Zoe Berkey finished second in their category in the gruelling Atmosphere Mind Over Mountain Adventure Race at Cumberland on Sept. 24.

The Berkeys completed the 50km Enduro course in five hours, 19 minutes and 41 seconds to place second in the team of two, co-ed category and 18th overall in the field.

Bruce had previously raced a MOMAR, but Zoe was making her debut in the race, although she already boasted an impressive athletic resume, including Cowichan Secondary School’s Female Athlete of the Year award for 2011 and a four-year NCAA Div. 1 field hockey scholarship to the University of Maine, where she was named to the National Academic Squad all four years.

The MOMAR is an off-road multisport sprint adventure race that requires participants to navigate their way to a series of checkpoints within an eight-hour limit. Elements include mountain biking, paddling, orienteering and trail running. The MOMAR series has staged 37 races in B.C. over 17 race seasons.
