Remembrance Day Fund raiser runs  

Posted by Pete McBreen Tue, 10 Nov 2015 04:00:04 GMT

As we all know Remembrance Day is upon us and at this time of year it is even more important to recognize our veterans, especially those veterans who need to utilize the food bank.

The Veterans food bank is part of the Calgary Poppy Fund, which has a goal of assisting needy veterans, their widows and dependents with medical, shelter, food and dental care.

So here is your chance to donate and get a workout in all in the same morning.

Saturday November 14th and Sunday November 15th @ 0830 will be your chance to donate to the veterans food bank. On both days we will be asking for a cash only donations from all runners who plan to run on these days. There is no set amount to donate, please just donate what you can afford. Once we have a total after Sundays run the club will match the total of donations collected and donate the total funds to the food bank.

Posted by Pete McBreen Wed, 17 Jun 2015 16:35:59 GMT

Australian runner from the 1960’s has passed away he set multiple 5K and 10K distance records in the 1960’s.

As an athlete Clarke was revered not for medals he won but for the fact he changed his sport. He didn’t just break records, he reshaped the entire idea of what was possible: he reduced the 5000m record four times by a total of 18 seconds, the 10,000m three times, by 39 seconds in all. At his peak in 1965 during a 44-day tour of Europe he set 12 world records, nine of them in just 21 days.
