My journey with PIH started in 2004 by coming to Victoria to race the Mount Douglas Gutbuster where I met Race Director, Bob Reid.  Bob invited me to join the Harriers and I have been a club member for 10 years now and have been fortunate to participate in many Harriers-hosted events including, Pioneer, Gunner Shaw, Stewart Mountain and Elk/Beaver.
