Come for the race, stay for the party! The forecast of impending wet weather for the 11th annual BMO St. Patrick’s Day 5k, didn’t dampen the spirits of runners as nearly 2,000 runners all dressed in green lined up on Pipeline Road for the 5k run in Stanley Park on Saturday, March 12, 2016. With a little “Luck of the Irish” the sun came out for perfect running conditions, maybe even a little too perfect, as Luc Bruchet and Rachel Cliff went on to break the course records en route to victory of the 2016 BMO St. Patrick’s Day 5K ! With their overall wins, course record bonuses, mile bonuses and B.C. championship titles, Luc Bruchet and Rachel Cliff each took home $900.
