Cal Coast runners celebrated the return of Southern California's oldest road race, the Balboa Park 8 Miler, on August 7th, 2021. The trio of masters runners who attended the race were excited to participate in their first, true mass-start race in 18 months.
Dan Derway, Leon Laub, and Kurt Whittington raced against a very competitive field and they came away happy with their results. Kurt was the 2nd overall masters finisher and won his 5-year age group with a time of 49:11.
Some of Cal Coast's open women runners (and Coach Sumner) raced the 4th of July 5k in Huntington Beach. A new coarse brought new challenges, but the women had a good time and put on a good showing (and showed off new women's uniforms).
With open track meets cancelled for more than a year, Cal Coast veteran Holly Gery, worked with Coach Sumner to procure the use of Corona Del Mar High School's brand new track for a sprint relay. Five teams consisting of Cal Coast men, women, open and masters runners lined up to race the 4x400m relay. The race was exciting, fun, and best of all, no one got injured! Coach Sumner would like to hold another event in the future as this is a great way for the club members to interact and race something different, just for fun.
