Great Day for a Marathon

July 29, 2013 By ADAM WILLIAMS, Kamloops Daily News Intern Reporter (Adapted)

Ryan Day of Cache Creek … successfully defended (his) title, crossing the finish line on MacArthur Island in two hours 42 minutes 19.9 seconds.  “It was a pretty rough go today,” Day said, after struggling with gastrointestinal issues over the race’s first half. “It was kind of a come-from-behind . . . I didn’t get to the front until maybe 32K.”  Despite his setbacks, Day’s time was just under seven minutes slower than his winning time in 2012. It was an impressive victory considering that, because of how he was feeling, he had to stop to rest for a few minutes at the 18-kilometre mark.

Day, 30, is a member of the St’uxwtéws (Bonaparte) Indian Band. His heritage makes the Kamloops marathon an important race for him and one that he’ll compete in every year that he’s able.  “This is my traditional territory, so I’ve got to represent,” he said. “It’s like anybody on their home turf – they want to represent and be a role model for young kids out there who are running. We were good runners way back, too.”
