2012 Oak Bay Relays

The 2012 Oak Bay Half Marathon Relay was another smashing success!  BDHQ had the most teams entered, a title we’ve held year after year at this event, and our 11 teams gave it their all.  The sun was out in full force as we hit the pavement, a welcome change to last year’s torrential down pour (see 2011’s drenched photos HERE).  Big shout out to Shenanigans Promogear who made our team shirts that get better every year we participate.  107.3 Kool FM’s live race commentaries were especially hilarious, or maybe it was just our performances that were?  We had a couple BDHQ shirts off finishes and a Children of the Corn remake when one of our teams was finishing at the same time the kids race was starting.  Congrats to Lovisa’s little sister Marika who won the 5k race for her age category and to our Lululemon Johnson St friend Care Nelson who came first for the woman overall in the half marathon.  Oak Bay Bistro was serving up the eggs and coffee post race, so big thanks for hosting us Chef Waller!  Most importantly, thanks to Peninsula Runners Victoria for putting on BDHQ’s favorite event and to all of you who came out and raced or cheered.  See you in May 2013!
