Jeff Vogt Top Local In Midsummer 8K

Pushed by the top female runner, Kelowna’s Jeff Vogt maintained his recent domination of the Interior Running Association’s road race series on Sunday.

Vogt, winner in two of the past four Canadian Tire Series races, ran to third-place overall among 183 runners in the annual Kelowna Midsummer 8K Run.

The 35-year-old recorded a time of 27.56 over the fast and flat out-and-back course from Gyro Beach to City Park, finishing behind two Vancouver runners — Adam Byles (25:13) and Kevin O’Conner (25:56) — and 11 seconds ahead of the No. 1 female competitor, Natasha Wodak, also of Vancouver.
