Tuesday, December 18 2007 - Mountain runners wanted for NACAC Championships
The CTMRA is looking for 6 runners (3 senior men, 3 senior women) to make up our team for the 2008 NACAC mountain running championships  on June 15th, 2008, in Tepatitlan, Jalisco, Mexico. The 13 km uphill race will feature top mountain runners from Mexico, the USA and Canada. Accommodation and meals will be provided by the LOC. We are pursuing funding for travel, but for the moment athletes will be responsible for their own flights.

Interested athletes should send a resume of their racing experience to by Friday, February 29th, 2008. The team will be announced on Monday, March 31st, 2008.

Selection will be based on the road race standards (as a minimum) posted here, with an emphasis on races 10k and longer, international mountain running experience, and general trail running experience. We will endeavour to select athletes who are planning to run the Canadian championships at the Peak Challenge, and qualify for the WMRT in Sierre/Crans-Montana, Switzerland.

The selection committee will consist of John Lofranco, CTMRA President; James Clampett, CTMRA Treasurer; Phil Villeneuve, CTMRA Vice-President, Eric Langhjelm, Race Director, Peak Challenge; and Thelma Wright, Cross-country coordinator, Athletics Canada.
