Both the 2011 official and unofficial training run programs have been updated. Time to lace up your sneakers for those weekly outings! Information about the programs can be found here.
As the 2011 season is starting to gain momentum, I wanted to mention the BC Ultra Trail Running Series (BCUTS) for those of you who are interested in a little friendly series competition, or who are looking for other great local races. The next race in the series is Diez Vista on April 9, 2011. This is a beautiful and challenging 50km run and something to consider if you weren’t lucky in the KKNSTR lottery, or if you’re nicely ahead of your 50km training for July. For more info, check out the link or contact Martha Grant or George Forshaw.
The Georgia Straight recently published an article about trail running on the North Shore, with interviews from Nicola Gildersleeve, Marianne Stark and Kelsy Trigg. All three tell their experiences of how they were drawn to the sport and how it continues to fire a passion in them. You can read the story here.
