Cambrian XC runner competes in Canadian championships

He placed 76th overall, coming close to his personal best time
Adam Kalab of Nepean (centre) represented Cambrian College at the CCAA National Cross-country Running Championships in Medicine Hat, Alberta, Nov. 12.

For Adam Kalab, it was a great way to end the cross-country running season.

Kalab, from Nepean, is a member of the Cambrian College Golden Shield cross-country running team.

He finished 20th among Ontario runners at the Canadian College Athletic Association national cross-country championships earlier this month in Alberta. Kalab finished 76th overall.

Kalab completed the 8K course in a time of 30:53, just over a minute off his personal best time, and an improvement on his performance at the Ontario championships where he placed 22nd with a time of 31:32.

“It was a great experience. The weather conditions were a bit challenging but I was able to run a strong race on a fast course,” says Kalab, who is a student in Cambrian’s Environmental Monitoring and Impact Assessment program.

“I had a slow start, but I was able to settle in and work my way up the pack. I’m thankful for all the support from my coaches, my teammates and the Athletics department back in Sudbury. I really enjoyed representing Cambrian this season.”
