Surrey Toddlers Raise Trophies at the 2019 Canada Strider® Cup

Kids Enjoyed a Day Filled With Friends and Friendly Competition

(Surrey, BC, Canada, August 17, 2019) – Surrey’s Civic Plaza served as the perfect racecourse as over 120 toddlers raced in the August 17 Surrey Strider Cup. Toddlers tested their skills, dashing through the hanging pool noodles of the “Noodle Monster” and launching over “Mount Scary,” two ramps positioned back-to-back with smoke rising from a “lava-filled” crack in the center. Surrey and other British Columbia natives claimed many of the top spots making this inagural BC Strider Cup event a major success. 

Surrey’s own Finn Juthans took top prize in the two-year-old class followed by Jackson Hickey of Aldergrove and Jonah Barretto of Richmond. The four-year olds had some tough competition this year but Jacob Gibson trimphed in his hometown. Right behind Gibson were Rossi Zhong and James Verran. After a short lunch break the three-year olds were ready to fly. Lucas Jaramillo of Burnaby came out on top over two Surrey natives, Kingston Hughes and Lance Zaphyrus “Zed” Pabuaya. The day wraped up with the open 14x class, consiting of four to six-year olds. Five-year-old Ethan Crutcher out of Washington, USA raced his way to the top of the podium ahead of Surrey competitors Nickolas Powell and Landon McLean.
