|Thursday, July 26 2007 - Canadian team announced for NACAC championships
The Canadian Trail and Mountain Running Association (CTMRA), sponsored by La Sportiva, in association with the Canmore Challenge Trail will host the fourth North American Central American Caribbean (NACAC) Mountain Running Championship in Canmore, Alberta, on Sunday, July 28. This up and down event will act as a tune-up for NACAC teams in preparation for the World Mountain Running Trophy (WMRT) events to be held in Saillon, Switzerland on September 15.
The Canadian teams will be made up of both veterans (Husband-and-wife team Simon and Katrina Driver, and Amy Golumbia from the 2006 team) and rookies (1:19 half marathoner Jennifer Faraone and orienteering whiz Laszlo Orosz). See below for a complete list.
The race site is the Canmore Nordic Center, venue for the 1988 Winter Olympic cross country ski and biathlon events, which recently completed a $16 million dollar renovation. The elevation at the Center is 1425 meters. The course will be a 12 kilometer route for all competitors (men, women, juniors, masters) and will start at the Nordic Centre, descend to the Bow River, climb back up to the top of the Nordic Centre Trails, and loop back down to the start/finish area. The two-lap course will have an elevation gain of about 450m. For more information visit: www.mountainrunning.ca or www.canmorechallenge.com
The CTMRA and La Sportiva are pleased to announce the Canadian team for the NACAC championships/Canmore Challenge. These runners, and others, will be vying for a spot on the national team for the World Mountain Running Trophy in Switzerland in September.
