Memorial Run

Date: Sunday, November 24, 2019
Registration: 9:15 to 9:45
Race Time : 10 am
Start/Finish: Lewis Park river walkway just North of the 5th Street Bridge

This annual run is in recognition of people who we have lost. That might include club members such as Lorne Franks, John Siemens, Paul Ervin and Terry Nielsen, or you may want to run in the memory of someone else who was close to you. This is an event for people of all levels from walkers to runners, strollers welcome (no dogs please). It is not about speed. You can walk, jog or run at whatever speed you wish. Participants choose the distance they will run and predict their time, with the winners being the closest to their own predicted time. Maximum time allowed is 50 minutes. Obviously, no watches or timing devices are allowed. CVRR welcomes all club members and the public to take part in the event. There will be draw prizes as well as a perpetual trophy awarded to the winners. 

A Pot Luck will follow. Please bring something to share as well as cup, plate, cutlery and some good stories. 

A short AGM will follow the Pot luck.

Hope to see you all at any or all of these events. 

Ron Crowther
President, CVRR

Levins Sets Canadian Marathon Record

This weekend at the Toronto Waterfront Marathon, a new national benchmark was set. Cameron Levins of Black Creek, in his debut marathon, set a new Canadian Marathon Record.  With a time of 2:09:25, he smashed the previous record by 44 seconds. The previous record (2:10:09) was set by Jerome Drayton in 1975. The fact that the previous record had stood for 43 years is a testament to the magnitude of this achievement.
