A plen­ti­ful Har­vest

Some scenes from the 2012 Har­vest Run in Car­bon­ear

The Compass - - P2012ORTHTE -

Oc­to­ber is the month of har­vest. It is also the time for the an­nual Har­vest Run hosted by Car­bon­ear Col­le­giate at the Car­bon­ear Re­cre­ation Com­plex. The 11th edition of the run was held Oct. 22. Some 1,036 run­ners from 30 schools gal­loped around the track, pound­ing the pave­ment in hopes of reach­ing the top of the podium. Par­ents and fel­low students stood off to the side cheer­ing on their peers, and in some cases, run­ning with them in hopes of keep­ing the run­ners go­ing. The Com­pass was there to cap­ture all of the sights and sounds. Here is a col­lec­tion of im­ages.

The start­ing line can hold a lot of pres­sure, but not for these young rac­ers. They hammed it up with friends from school on the side­lines. The students are (from left) — Amelia Legge and Jenna Greene of Acre­man El­e­men­tary in Green’s Har­bour, and Jamie Grimes, Jenna Mercer and Sarah Yet­man of Har­bour Grace Pri­mary.

Har­bur Grace Pri­mary teacher Paul Hamil­ton ex­plains some rules to his students prior to their race at the Har­vest Run. Pic­tured are students (from l-r) Maggy White, Emily Rose O’Neill and Dy­lan Whe­lan.

Cross-coun­try run­ning takes a lot of ef­fort. For ev­i­dence, see the face of Gabe Ardis, a Grade 3 stu­dent at Wood­land El­e­men­tary in Dildo, as he pushes to­wards the fin­ish.

Dal­las Durocher (563) of Perl­win El­e­men­tary in Vic­to­ria leads this pack of Grade 4 boys run­ners. Next is Ni­cholas An­tle (639), also of Per­salvic, who is check­ing the run­ners be­hind him. They are Noah Reynolds (297) of Har­bour Grace Pri­mary and Rob­bie El­lis (564) of Perl­win El­e­men­tary.

These three Gradce 4 girls’ run­ners are in a dead heat at the Har­vest Run. They are (from left) Bri­anna Rus­sell of All Hal­lows El­e­men­tary in North River, Madi­son Hop­kins of Tri­con El­e­men­tary in Bay de Verde and Hailee Hoyles of Davis El­e­men­tary in Car­bon­ear.

Cameron Byrne (277) of Har­bour Grace Pri­mary and Evan Mur­ray (365) of Davis El­e­men­tary in Car­bon­ear are caught in the back of a pack of run­ners which in­clude Luke Davis (13) of St. Anne’s, and Adam Whe­lan (500) and Aaron Hearn (501), both from St. Bernard’s El­e­men­tary.

Proof of Kait­lyn Pike’s ef­fort to chase down Emma Win­sor of St. Anne’s Academy in Dunville is writ­ten all over Pike’s face dur­ing the Grade 3 girls’ race. Pike is a Grade 3 stu­dent at Cabot Academy in Western Bay.

Sammi-Jo Haire, a Grade 4 stu­dent at Har­bour Grace Pri­mary, pushes to­wards the fin­ish line dur­ing the Grade 4 fe­male race. Haire fin­ished in third place.

Abi­gail Hur­ley, a Grade 4 stu­dent at All Hal­lows El­e­men­tary in North River, wears some un­usual ear muffs dur­ing her race.

Some­where along the race track, Noah Tay­lor of Acre­man El­e­men­tary in Green’s Har­bour ran out of his shoes and had to fin­ish the race hold­ing his right sneaker in his hand.
