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.”
