Run to Remember - Courir pour se souvenir 2018
Sudbury, ON, Canada

Hello to all participants!

We would firstly like to thank you all for coming out and braving the snow to make our race such a success! We truly appreciate your participation.

We know that we can improve certain elements of the race and would like your feedback, both constructive and positive.

We have decided to change the race options for next year to include a 1km and 5km (possibly a 10km). Also, as next year's race will not be on November 11th, we will be able to start in the morning, as Remembrance Day celebrations will not be an issue.

Thank you for your feedback.

This race is a student-led fundraiser for #IVEGOTYOURBACK911, an organization that supports first responders suffering from PTSD and to create a merit bursary for a graduating student.

On Nov. 11, members of the public gathered at the Sudbury Arena to observe Remembrance Day.

Thousands of citizens were joined by federal, provincial and municipal representatives eager to show their support for those who have served and continue to serve in Canada's armed forces.

Sunday marked the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War and was commemorated with 100 tolls of the bell as part of the Royal Canadian Legion's Bells of Peace program.

U SPORTS National XC Running Championships

Fort Henry, Kingston, 11/10/18

U SPORTS National Cross-Country Running Championships


The Laurentian cross-country running teams raced at the U SPORTS National championships this weekend. Running in cold weather and winds gusting to 70km/hour on Kingston’s Fort Henry course, the women’s team tied a school record by placing 10th, matching their national ranking and finishing as the third OUA squad across the line. The men placed a surprise 13th in only the fourth season since their reinstatement. They entered the contest ranked 16th in the country.

Over 150 women competed, including runners from 20 women’s teams plus individuals from an additional 11 universities. The men’s race included over 160 runners including 19 full squads plus runners from an additional 14 schools.

Jenny Bottomley

Jenny Bottomley led the women’s team with a 23rd-place finish in a time of 29:43 over the 8km course. Megan Crocker placed 36th in a time 30:17; Nicole Rich placed 44th in 30:30; Breanne Steven was 90th in 31:30 and Jessie Nusselder completed the scoring by placing 113th in a time of 32:06. Displacers were both rookies: Pascale Gendron, who placed 123rd in 32:35 and Sarah Thackeray who was 142ndth in 33:29.

Megan Crocker

“This is a veteran team and they showed it today with their composure under some difficult conditions,” said coach, Dick Moss. “The goal since the start of the season was to crack the-top four at the OUAs and top-10 at Nationals, and they did exactly that. On the negative side, our entire top-five graduates this year and it will be really hard to say goodbye to them.”

“This is a gritty, dedicated group of guys, and to improve from reinstatement to the national stage in only four years is exceptional” said coach, Darren Jermyn. “And things should keep improving. This entire squad should be back next year.”

This concludes the 2018 cross-country season. The teams now begin a short recovery phase before joining their indoor-track teammates at practice.
