Posted by Pete McBreen Mon, 29 Sep 2014 03:16:14 GMT

Week beginning 29-September

Tuesday 30-September – Fun Training Group will meet at 6:30 at Tim Horton’s off Highway 22, running up the grass hill for power, so usual drills and fun on the hill.

Wednesday 01-October – easy run from Tim Hortons on Quarry Street (near Walmart), start at 6:30PM – will run at pace of slowest person who shows up. Note change of location, Brent wanted to run from a place that served coffee.

Thursday 02-October – meet 6:30 at Bow Valley High School (in the Riversong community) – at track – 10 x 300m, 1 minute jog recovery, aiming for 5K pace or faster. If you can run the 300m in under 53 seconds you would be keeping up with the new marathon record pace – if you can do it 140 times consecutively without a break you would set the record.

Friday 03-October Ambulance Chasers race from Eau Claire, Calgary

Saturday 04-October – meet 8:30AM, long run from Coffee Traders, 10 to 20K depending on how far you want to go. Frank and Danny will also be doing 5K run/walk starting at same time

Sunday 05-October – meet 8:45 at Coffee Traders for an easy 5K to 15K – there will be opportunities to turn around early if you do not want the full distance.

Dino Dash Results

Jim won his age group in the 5K and Sierra beat a guy seven times her age. In the 10K Ken Skea did 40:09, Neil did 43:48 and Marathon Martin was the surprise of the day with 44:56 – so it does help to do the long runs.

Photos from Pete and Bethan are now uploaded
