First corporate cup - CP AIR dominates! Until noon! Extracted from a report by Mike Evans.
Action B.C. supported by the Provincial Government Ministry of Health sponsored the first British Columbia Corporate Cup of Athletics at Swangard Stadium May 19, 1979.
The Corporate Cup consisted of 10 running and throwing events ranging from a six mile team run to a softball throw relay and superstars obstacle course.
CP Air's team average was 36 years and represented CP Air's ethnic mix of employees with the following countries of birth: Canada 3; New Zealand 1; Australia 1; China 1; UK 2.
CP Air's strength lay in the men's distance team and in the women’s events.
Off to a good start with leading in four events with a superb run in the 6 mile race by Wiggs, placed fourth in the ladies event and by Sierpina (11th), Dunn (25th) and Schlichtling (26th) in the men's event. This was good for second place.
