5km start



Aproximately 140 participants came out to support first responders in the Run to Remember trail races at College Boréal on Sunday. There were events to satisfy all comers including a 1km, 5km, and 10km trail run.

A light blanket of new snow covered the trail sections transforming the runs through a winter wonderland. There were some challenges involving a water hazard and a slippery rock section - both easily negotiated. The paved sections were down to bare conditions thanks to college maintenance staff.

All finishers received a medal , a tee and there was a BBQ with hot drinks and even massages when all were done.

This growing event is well organized with great volunteer support and lots of energy apparent.

Put this run on your to do list for next time. You won`t be disappointed.

SUDBURY – Sudburians laced up their sneakers at Collège Boréal to raise awareness about PTSD support and treatment for first responders.

The weather was brisk but that didn't discourage any of the runners.

Participants had the choice of either running the one kilometre, the five kilometre or the 10 kilometre.

They were also treated to warm food and a massage inside the school afterwards.

"It's a race that's organized by the fitness and health promotion students at Collège Boréal, we're raising funds for I've Got Your Back 911," explained Emilie Lacroix, Collège Boréal Program Coordinator.

"I'm a first-responder, I'm a paramedic and I believe that it's nice to incorporate the fitness component to it because it's a good way of helping your mental health," commented ValerieBreen, Collège Boréal Professor.

Chief Paul Pederson of the Greater Sudbury Police Services added that "for Sudbury Police, certainly we're feeling the effects of occupational stress injuries and post-traumatic stress, illness as well… this is all about raising awareness, breaking down stigma, raising funds for groups like I've Got Your Back 911 that are helping our people… our people need to get help so we can help the public."

According to the I've Got Your Back 911 website, since April 2014, at least 196 first responders and military service individuals across Canada have died by suicide.

Beautiful day to run the 10km Run to Remember trail race. This was my first time running this event and it certainly won't be my last. The energy from everyone was fantastic! The hills, snow, water, mud & ice made for a nice challenge. Vince warned me of the slippery rock face but I still took the area too fast and slid down during the 1st km.

U SPORTS National Cross Country Running Championships

Fort Henry Park, Kingston, 11/9/19

Liam Passi

The Laurentian University men’s cross-country running team competed at the U SPORTS cross country running championship at Kingston’s Fort Henry on the weekend, with the team finishing twelfth in the nation.

Full teams from 19 schools participated in the event, plus individuals from an additional 10 schools.

The Laurentian squad was led by Liam Passi, who placed 35th with a time of 32:14 over the 10 kilometre course. He was followed by Eric Gareau, who was 66th in 32:58; Keon Wallingford who finished 72nd in 33:04 and was the sixth fastest rookie in the race; veteran Caleb Beland who was 88th in 33:44 and rookie Chase Canty, who completed the scoring by finishing 89th in 33:48. Displacers were Alexandre Fishbein-Ouimette and rookie, Nick Lambert who were 103rd and 123rd in 34:18 and 35:29 respectively.

Racing on a muddy course with winds gusting to 50 km/hour, the men scored a total of 350 points for their 12th-place finish and a top-five average time of 33:09. Their team score was one place and 35 points better than last year.

“We were pretty banged up after the OUAs. In fact, Eric was on crutches until a week ago. We initially didn’t think either Eric or Keon would be able to race, but the guys got the "OK" just in time and the entire team put in a gutsy effort on race day,” said men ‘s coach, Darren Jermyn. “I’m proud of the way they all competed, with special kudos to our seniors, Liam Pass and Caleb Beland.

“The men’s team has made remarkable progress since they were reinstated five years ago,” said head coach, Dick Moss. “In OUA competition, they’ve finished 12, 9, 8, 7 and this year, 6th. Last year was the first time they qualified for Nationals and placed 13th. This year, they’ve improved to the top-12. So, from top-12 in the OUA to top-12 in the country in five years. Darren and his athletes have done a tremendous job and things look promising for the future.”
