5k Date Change

Due to the volcanic ash over Europe, my travel plans have been put into disarray. As a result, the next BVH 5k will not take place on Wednesday April 28 as planned but will now take place on Wednesday May 5.

I was going to do some write-ups of races but I couldn't possibly top Phil Villeneuve's write-up of his recently 50k trail run experience. Have a look at Phil's Good, Bad and Ugly account at this address.

Spring Lull

The Spring lull is over and we finally have some races to report on. Reports on the Glencoe Icebreaker and the 50k trail race Phil Villeneuve was doing in B.C. will follow shortly.

In the meantime, anyone who lives in Canmore should check out the latest edition of the Rocky Mountain Outlook. Virtually the entire front page is a picture of Harrier Scott Manktelow putting in some serious effort on a bike (ignore the references to arson and dead cougars which are next to his picture, Scott had nothing to do with those). He came second in the Canmore Winter Meltdown triathlon (10k xc ski, 10k bike, 5k run) last weekend. Looks like it was a good event - well done, Scott!
