A Houston team has come out on top for the annual Skeena Relay.

The 140 kilometre relay takes place between Prince Rupert to Terrace and is known as one of the most scenic routes around, going through the “Ocean Gateway of the North” and following the Skeena River, known as the “River of Mist” to the Ts’msyen Aboriginal peoples.

The Cool Beans placed first in the women’s relay division, finishing the run in 12 hours and 14 minutes.

Another Houston team also took place in the Relay, establishing new personal bests for all involved.

Of the 35 teams registered from all across the Northwest, theirs had the oldest average age for all members.

Both teams said the event was a fun one.
