Ramstead, Baxendale among leaders in 30th Chemainus Twilight Shuffle

Duncan’s own Jill Ramstead was the top female runner in the 30th annual Twilight Shuffle in Chemainus on June 24.

Ramstead completed the 5km run in 19 minutes and 10 seconds, edging Shawnigan Lake’s Nancy Baxendale by six seconds.

Ramstead and Baxendale were the only two female runners to crack the top 10 in the race, which benefits the Lorna Nicholls Memorial Bursary awarded by the Chemainus Legion to a local high school student.

The overall winner was Bruce Deacon of Victoria, an Olympian in the marathon in 1996 and 2000. With a time of 16:13, Deacon finished an impressive minute and 21 seconds ahead of his closest competitor, Duncan’s Richard Light.

Rounding out the top five were Jeremy Lawrence of Brentwood Bay at 17:58, Eric Hartford of Mill Bay at 18:48 and Gary Duncan, Victoria 18:54.

The race attracted a grand total of 214 entries.
