Bren­nans show speed in PCE Run

Gam­ble, Profit lead way in 10K

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - SPORTS -

Jen­nifer Pizio-Perry in­ter­rupted a Brennan fam­ily 5K sweep of the top three plac­ings in the Prince County Ex­hi­bi­tion’s 5 and 10K Run on Satur­day.

Morgan Brennan, 16, fin­ished first in a time of 23 min­utes 54 sec­onds (23:54). His 11-year-old brother, Maguire, was one sec­ond back, and right on his heels, in 23:56, was the race’s top fe­male, Pizio-Perry.

For Pizio-Perry, it was her first race in more than a year fol­low­ing a tran­si­tion of sorts to cross-fit train­ing.

The Brennan broth­ers’ mother, Lu­cille, who was the sec­ond fe­male fin­isher, fourth over­all in a time of 25:11, said it was good to have Pizio-Perry near the lead as it pushed her sons to run harder.

“I was try­ing to stay ahead of Jen,” Maguire said in agree­ing she helped pro­vide the push. He ac­tu­ally led his older brother for much of the race.

“Un­til we could see (the fin­ish line), and then I started go­ing fast,” Morgan ad­mit­ted. Maguire stayed on his heels the rest of the way. Pizio-Perry fol­lowed closely, shout­ing en­cour­age­ment.

This year the ex­hi­bi­tion of­fered a new course, en­tirely on the Con­fed­er­a­tion Trail, start­ing and end­ing at the Old Stone Sta­tion. There were eight run­ners in the 5K and seven in the 10K.

The West­ern Re­gion Sport and Recre­ation Coun­cil helped co-or­di­nate the event.

Top 10K run­ners were

David Gam­ble in 43:45, and Maria Profit in

44:50.
