And they’re off!

On an unseasonably cool day in Waterloo, Ontario, runners hit the beautiful paved trail system along the Grand River Trail at RIM Park/Walter Bean Trail/Grey Silo Golf Course for a half marathon. August is not the typical season for half marathons, but of course, nothing about ENDURrun is typical.

Congratulations to all participants in today’s race. You can find the full results at, including cumulative views that will become much more interesting once additional Stages are added.

Congratulations to Rebecca Kruisselbrink for taking top spot today, and to Aidan Rutherford for joining the coveted Golden Club. Bruce Grant is both the Masters and Rookie leader, distinctions which are shared with Vicki Zandbergen and Sarah Haslam.

Photos from today are coming to our Flickr site very soon.

Runners now have less than 24 hours to rest and recover before Stage 2: a 15k time trial format along the (also) beautiful Grand Trunk Trail section of the Grand River Trail in Cambridge, Ontario. Runners start one minute apart in reverse order of the standings, with relay runners slotted in. It makes for a wild and condensed finish order!

Runners will start at approximately these times, plus/minus 5 minutes. Runners are expected to be ready 5 minutes before their projected start. Note that we are starting the first runner at 8:10, not 8:00 as previously reported, because the washrooms open at 8:00.
