2014 LU "Black Flies"
Track and Field Meet
Saturday April 26, 2014
Sudbury's first Night Run took place in Bell Park
this Saturday and 86 enthusiastic runners came out to run the
evening 5km. Race Director Dan Welch put it on "because
there wasn't one and they are gaining in popularity across the
country". Everyone was issued a head lamp and at the start
line all were reminded of the words "FUN" and "RUN"
which the lack of often drives newbies or those less confident.
away. It’s not a race, Welch said.
That being said we did time the event as many
participants just love to know how they performed. Medals were
given to the fastest, oldest and youngest male and female runners.
Finally all participants got a chance at draw prizes.
Funds raised will go to the Northern Water Sports
Centre working to raise $500,000 through community support.
They are gathering funds through various endeavours and support
like the Night Run and including the Reel Paddling Film Festival
– all the world’s best paddling films on display
– on May 8 at Sudbury Secondary School.
From Run Director Dan Welch:
A big thank you to everyone
who came out to make Sudbury’s first 5K night run a huge
success, especially to our volunteers!
Hosted by the Sudbury Canoe Club and
organized by Dan Welch, nearly 90 runners and walkers participated
and raised nearly $1,500 for the construction of the Northern
Water Sports Centre!
With the construction of the new facility
well underway, we'll be hosting the run from our new home next
Rocks!! Shawn Schryer Hits
On Saturday I completed 25km. of PYP in Horseshoe Valley. This
trail run is a real treat for trail runners that enjoy ascending
and descending ski hills and slopes. I have participated in
this race a few times,it is a 12.5 km loupe and it offers a
12.5 km to 50km
Due to a lengthy winter,the ski hills were snow packed,it made
it more challenging for footing. On a lighter note I found myself
yawning a lot and not for reasons of fatigue but more overwhelmed
by the fresh air up in the hills, Im not use to all this fresh
My final thoughts is that I have a deep respect for runners
that complete the ultra 50km,it is no cake walk going the distance,it
be very difficult to continuously run the whole 50km without
walking at some point especially up these gradient hills.
I was able to get all my outdoor/snow running and hill training
in about 3 hrs,pretty good deal for me as most people know me
as an indoor track runner in the winter months.
This race continues to be on Shawn,s list of favourites...try
PYP in Horseshoe valley,its a special place.

We are looking for some clinic coaches for some upcoming
spring clinics, we would need coaches to teach learn
to run clinics all the way up to half marathon clinics.
Being a clinic coach is a great way to keep yourself
on track for your fall races and allows you to pass
on the knowledge you have gained from previous clinic
coaches and help others, you also get the benefit
of a staff discount at the store.
