ST. THOMAS - The Railway City road races were back on track for the first time this decade.

On a two-year hiatus due to the COVID pandemic, the meet returned with races of five and 10 kilometres, a half marathon and a one kilometre Choo Choo Challenge for children age 10 and under.

The start and finish line were in the west yard of the Elgin County Railway Museum.

Runners in the half marathon had a tour of downtown, in Pinafore Park, around the Tarry Complex and through south east St. Thomas.

Jacob Zerko, of Cambridge, won the 10K, in 33 minutes and 47 seconds (33:47). Andrew Monteith, a 16-year old student at Parkside Collegiate, finished third, in 38:26. Sylvia Courtis, of St. Thomas, was the top female, placing eighth overall, in a time of 43:38.

Sean Pynaert, from Thorndale, took the 5K, in 20:30, followed by Belmont's Reid Lester (21:02). Caroline Balogh led the women, placing fifth overall (21:37).

Matt Straatman, of Lucan, was the half marathon champ, with Janet Tufts, the top female.
