Silver for Spartans' Johnston

Blair Johnston picked up a silver medal at the B.C. Athletics provincial 5-km road running championships.

The Trinity Western Spartans runner was competing in the race in Vancouver on Saturday. The championships were run in conjunction with the BMO St. Patrick’s Day race.

Johnston crossed the finish line in 15:26.69, which was good for second in provincials and fifth overall amongst all runners, including those competing in just the St. Patrick’s Day race.

The second-place finish comes on the heels of Johnston’s bronze medal at the Canada West championships three weeks ago in the 1,500m event.
