South Surrey runner Luc Bruchet stunned many in the field at Canadian Cross-Country Championships last weekend, finishing fifth in the senior men's race at Vancouver's Jericho Beach.

Bruchet, who runs with UBC, was coming off a tough eight-km race at NAIA championships the week before, and was racing against Olympians and national team members at the 10-km Jericho race.

Bruchet ran with the lead park for the first half of the race, even leading on a few occasions, before two Olympians – eventual winner Cameron Levins and second-place finisher Mohammed Ahmed – broke away from the pack.

Bruchet, an Elgin Park Secondary graduate, finished 25 seconds back of the winner.

Fellow South Surrey runner Blair Johnston, a White Rock Christian Academy alum and current Trinity Western University student, finished 21st in the senior men's race.
