We've really been enjoying the great energy of the Guelph running community lately, although it seems to have diminished my blogging ability. In a complete reversal of the 'build it and they will come' mentality, the highly successful Speed River Track Club is spearheading an ambitious project to raise funds for a proper 8-lane, international calibre outdoor running track.  We plan on helping them in any way we can.  See below:

Scott-Thomas’s fundraising puts Guelph on track for success

By Rory Gilfillan

Not long ago, a local Guelph reporter wrote that if you wanted to see Canada’s next generation of long distance talent, you needed look no further than Cooks Mill Road on a Sunday morning. Sure enough, the next week people started showing up to practice. Some came to watch; others came to run but the inclusive spirit that has animated every aspect of Dave Scott-Thomas’s formidable resume remained.
Dave Scott-Thomas isn’t just any coach. He’s the force behind the wildly successful Speed River Track Club and the architect who has built University of Guelph’s dominance in every distance over 1500 metres. Now, he wants to build a track that won’t just cater to the elite but to the entire community.

A playlist of Canadian tunes, a couple of Saturdays, some shiny new bikes, a Retul Kit, and a garage & basement; we're dialled into our bikes for the 2011 season. Thanks to the Canadian Sport Centre-Ontario for the equipment support, to National Team Mechanic Scott Kelly for fitting us, and to TL and JL (and families) for hosting.

Dear Athletes and Coaches,

In advance of the Coteau-du-lac Pan American Cup, this email is designed to clear up any confusion for athletes who wish to compete in the elite race on Sunday June 26th.

All athletes who wish to compete have to first be approved for Triathlon Canada’s International Competition Card (ICC). Athletes who have NOT been approved for an ICC in advance of the race, are not eligible to compete in the race.

Applications for the ICC can be found here on our website:

Also, all athletes need to be entered with the ITU prior to the race. Athletes wishing to enter the race can email myself at to request entry and I will enter them with the ITU. The ITU entry deadline is now 32 days before the date of the race. Athletes who have already requested to be entered do not need to send another email.

If you have any further questions please let me know,

Kind Regards,

Frank Christie
Program Coordinator
