On the women’s side, Rachel Munger and Cassandra Gunton finished first and second with times of 1:41:45 and 1:42:13, respectively.
In the first-ever XTERRA 15-km trail race, the Sea to Sky stole the show with six of the top 10 finishers being from the area.
The overall winner of the race was Washington state’s Barrett Fishner with a time of 1:30:49.
