SC Trail record broken Nicola Gildersleeve of North Vancouver set a new record for running the 180 kilometre Sunshine Coast Trail knocking 10 hours off the previous record held by Ean Jackson in 2004. Nicola’s time was 33 hours and 50 minutes. Powell River’s Joseph McLean was one of the pace runner for Nicola. It was a first for Joseph who has written a superb article about the ex-

perience on his blog, Quiet Dispatches. He describes the scenery, his thoughts, memories from days gone by, the challenge ahead and his valiant attempts to keep Nicola’s spirits up. Read the entire story at fastest-on-the-sunshine-coasttrail/.
