Hamilton woman wins the Around the Bay 30 k race

The weather was far from ideal, but the Around the Bay Road Race went ahead nonetheless. The race had suffered through two years of pandemic restrictions and virtual races but Sunday, the Around the Bay Road Race was officially back for a hybrid in-person/virtual race.  The in-person field is approximately 6,000 while the online contingent represented another 1,000.

Something else that was back this year is the aptly dubbed Heartbreak Hill at the 26k mark of the 30k route, as the Valley Inn Road bridge had been opened a few days ago

Victoria Coates of Hamilton captured the women’s 30 k with a time of 1:50:01, and Kevin Coffey of Kingston led the men with a time of 1:40.10.
