Congratulations to Chris Foroglou who raced the MEC Mont-Tremblant 20km trail run, good job on a difficult course, what's next Chris?
Congratulations as well to Julia Fraser who ran the National Capital 10k race at Mooney's Bay. Julia shaved off 16 seconds from her previous 10k race. Coach Bill's training is paying off!
Congratulations to Lucy Emery and Guillaume Bailly who participated in the Quebec Mega Trail at Mont Sainte-Anne. Lucy ran the 10k trail event while Guillaume ran the 48k trail event for the third year in a row. They enjoyed a nice warm up at the Grands-Jardins National Park and the Parc des Hauts Gorges in Malbaie.
Congratulations to Bernie Cornell who did a fundraiser bike ride for MS on Saturday July 15, 2017. The distance was 100kms from Ottawa to Cornwall. This was his first attempt at this distance and he did well considering the warm humid weather. Great job Bernie!
