Racing the TC10K

Pearson College UWC raced through the finish line of the TC10K for the fifth year in a row on Sunday, April 27, and we are proud to announce we had once again the largest school team, with 112 participants this year, winning the $1000 Island Farms School Team Challenge Award. The sun wasn’t too hot, the rain mostly held off and the cherry blossoms were out.

We scored the School Challenge Award as fastest school team, and came in as second fastest team overall with an average time for the top 5 runners of 38:52 — just 29 seconds behind Corporate Challenge Winner LifeSport’s average time of 38:23. 

We were privileged to be on a team with possibly the only blind runner in the race, and one of the top-20 runners overall — an incredible feat for a run that attracted 11,000 athletes. Go, Pearson, go!
