CROSS COUNTRY & TRAIL RUNNING

FOUR VANCOUVER ATHLETES RUN THE SUNSHINE COAST TRAIL

Powell River, British Columbia. Starting on Saturday 2 July at 2:00 am, a team of 4 athletes from Vancouver began an attempt to run the Sunshine Coast Trail. This was the first attempt at running nonstop the rugged 180-kilometre (over 110-mile) trail that stretches from Sarah Point on Desolation Sound in the north to the Saltery Bay ferry terminus in the south.

The attempt ended 43 hours and 50 minutes later with all four runners crossing the finish line. One of the team members, Ean Jackson of North Vancouver, managed to run the entire 180 kilometres non-stop.

The team was made up of Dom Repta, his brother Wade, Dave Cressman and Jackson who between them, have competed in over 200 ultramarathon, triathlon and extreme adventure racing competitions around the world.

The team hopes to bring recognition to the Sunshine Coast Trail, an initiative spearheaded by Eagle Walz, the Powell River Parks and Wilderness Society (PRPAWS) and others in Powell River who see outdoor recreation and tourism as being the future for a community that has traditionally been dependent on the forest industry. The Millennium Park Fund aims to acquire an oceanfront old growth green space, which has two urban salmon streams and a network of trails used by runners, cyclists and walkers.

The runners met support crew at intervals ranging from 10-30 kilometres along the trail. Cressman's attempt ended after 16 hours of running at approximately 82 kilometres. The Repta brothers continued 4 hours over Tin Hat Mountain, but were forced to abandon the attempt at nightfall on Saturday.

The Canada Day long weekend was chosen for the attempt for maximum daylight. Team member Wade Repta clarifies, "We planned to run through the night using headlamps to negotiate the trail in the dark. If we started to hallucinate or otherwise come unglued in the wilderness, our backup crew was there to keep us going." Gary Robbins and Mark Fearman from Whistler accompanied Jackson during the dangerous night sections of the trail that follow a precipitous ridgeline.

Eagle Walz, the architect of the trail clarified, "Had you asked me at this time last year, I'd have said it was impossible to run the Sunshine Coast Trail in two days. This trail requires a respectful approach. It runs through a temperate jungle, and is after all, higher in total elevation gain than Mount Kilimanjaro. This is truly an impressive accomplishment."

According to Walz, only a handful of hikers have been able to complete the entire Sunshine Coast Trail within a week. But as the trail becomes more well-known, it has become the target for elite runners looking for something that offers a bit more challenge than a road race. "We're great friends and we share a love for trail running," says Dave Cressman. "This was our way of celebrating Canada Day together with our friends and family."

Asked if he would someday attempt to better his record of 43 hours and 50 minutes, Jackson said, "No, this was a one-shot thing. We set out to run the trail non-stop as a team. One of us made it. We accomplished our goal and now it's up there for someone else to take the challenge."

The run will be the subject of a documentary film that is scheduled for release in the late fall of 2004.

The team will be presenting a free slide show on their adventure at
Mountain Equipment Co-Op on Wednesday 11 August. Pre-registration is required. Registration will be at: www.clubfatass.com/CABC_SCT180/register.html

PETER OGILVIE - TECHNICAL MANAGER TRACK & FIELD / DIRECTOR POWER & SPEED

As the new BC Athletics Technical Manager Track and Field and Director of the Power Speed Event Groups, I would like to introduce myself to you and take this time to point out some of my visions and goals in this position, effective immediately. I do believe in sharing this with each member within BC Athletics as we are all members in an extended track and field family and we need to make it happen - together.

As a former two-time Canadian Olympian (Barcelona 1992 & Atlanta 1996), I have had the honour of competing in this great sport for over 20 years in British Columbia. I have journeyed through the various developmental track and field programs here in British Columbia as a J.D., Juvenile, Junior and Senior athlete and I have taken part in many provincial, national and international competitions.

Having an extensive knowledge and understanding in the foundation of our sport, my immediate goals are to strengthen our sport from within and promote our sport to those who have not heard our message.

As I do like to have a much-more hands on approach with customer-service, your patience is needed as I try to manage this program the best way I can.

Here are just some of the key issues that I'll be working on with your much needed support and understanding:

  1. Exposing more young people to the greatest sport in the world - track & field - by taking steps within our school systems to keep our athletes in track and field and recruit more into our sport.
  2. Promote and develop a positive atmosphere incorporating a recognizable 'Team BC' for all age groups - Juvenile, Junior and Senior.
  3. Develop a renewed media presence to help promote our sport to the province and the world.
  4. Expanding official education and its program to recruit the next generation of volunteers and make it rewarding.
  5. Coaching development is critical. Clubs revolve around coaches. Therefore we must do everything possible to help coaches coach. We must identify the coaches and look at ways to reward them with opportunities and remuneration.
  6. Work together with existing clubs, committees and boards to develop a large pool of athletes that will allow our sport to grow in all areas.

I look forward in working alongside you in helping make this sport better for the future.

Sincerely,

Peter Ogilvie

NEW BC ATHLETICS DAY OF EVENT MEMBERSHIP FEE

BC Athletics Day of Event Membership Fee Sharing - New Schedule - effective April 1, 2004

The BC Athletics Board of Directors reviewed the Executive committee proposal and alternative proposals from both Maurice Wilson and Frank Stebner. The Board wishes to thank these members and others who may have contributed for their ideas and support on this matter.

The new Day of Event fee sharing schedule is as follows:

  1. The calculations are based on the number of Day of Event Members entered in your event. (Those who are not registered annual members [current] of BC Athletics or another Provincial/Territorial, State or National Athletics Association.)
  2. To support this BC Athletics provides to all sanctioned event organizers, a list of eligible members and an update to that list prior to the event. For those from another province, territory, state or national athletics association, they should verify membership with their valid association membership card. If they are not members of their provincial, territorial, state or national athletics association then they can become BC Athletics Day of Event members.
  3. The new Day of Event Membership Fee sharing schedule is:
  Number of Day of Event 
Members Entered
Fees Retained by Event Fees Remitted to 
BC Athletics
Step 1 The first 500 $1.00 per Day of Event Mbr. $2.00 per Day of Event Mbr.
Step 2 The next 500 $1.25 per Day of Event Mbr. $1.75 per Day of Event Mbr.
Step 3 The next 1000 $1.50 per Day of Event Mbr. $1.50 per Day of Event Mbr.
Step 4 The next 2000 $1.75 per Day of Event Mbr. $1.25 per Day of Event Mbr.
Step 5 All remaining $2.00 per Day of Event Mbr. $1.00 per Day of Event Mbr.
  1. Associated with the new fee schedule is also a scale of Value-In-Kind Benefits linked to each Step of the new schedule.

The value in-kind or soft benefits component of a new schedule of BC Athletics Day of Event membership fee sharing would apply and have benefit for both the Sanctioned Event and BC Athletics/Divisions.

The in-kind benefits to Club/Event Organizing Committee and BC Athletics (the Divisions of) from sanctioned events are to be linked to the Day of Event Membership fee retained by the sanctioned event and that returned to BC Athletics. The guiding principles are:

  1. that the more retained by the sanctioned event the more the event can provide to grow their participation and/or quality of their event; and
  2. that the more that is retained by the event, the greater the value in-kind benefits to the association/division within the event.

The following will developed and linked to the steps in the new Fee Sharing Schedule.

For the sanctioned events the benefits, financial and in-kind benefits (in addition to the standard benefits already provided) include and in no particular order:

  • an incentive to help grow participation in the event through the establishment of a new sharing formula for the day of event membership revenue;
  • enabling prize money or enhanced prize money through the retaining of more day of event membership revenue, based on a new sharing formula;
  • sport promotional information - provided by the association and put in participants event/race packages;
  • for member clubs, information on where to get location and contact information - provided by the association and put in participants event/race packages;
  • for children and families - information on kids programs - provided by the association and put in participants event/race packages;
  • provision for the display and distribution of event information brochures at the BC Athletics booth at event expos;
  • a review of the electronic version of the Calendar of Events which includes the consideration of the idea for a two tiered calendar:
    • the first calendar being only those events that are sanctioned by BC Athletics and other Prov/Terr or Nat'l Athletics Associations;
    • the second calendar - linked from the first calendar, would be the full calendar of all events, with the highlighting and bolding as is currently presented;
  • a calendar of events listing fee for non sanctioned events;
  • a partnership with the divisions of the association to provide assistance for regional level seminars and/or guest speakers in conjunction with a sanctioned event in that region.

These value-in-kind benefits will be linked in a progressive format to provide more to the event as the Day of Event Membership participation increases and as a result more of the Day of Event membership revenue is retained by the Club/Event Organizing Committee.

For BC Athletics/Divisions of the value-in-kind benefits to be linked to the steps in the new Fee Sharing Schedule include and in no particular order:

  • association/division information - in participants event/race package;
  • information on clubs - where to get location and contact information - in participants event/race package;
  • Athletics (the sport) promotional material that is specific to various parts of the sport e.g. road running - in participants event/race package;
  • information on kids programs - in participants event/race package;
  • association division logo on event entry forms/information packages;
  • signage at sanctioned events;
  • booth space at event expo and/or the event;
  • recognition at some level as a sponsor or supporter of the sanctioned event;
  • designation of Day of Event revenue retained by the club to go to prize money in the event;
    association/division representative participation in event awards presentations - as appropriate.

These value-in-kind benefits will be linked in a progressive format to provide more exposure to BC Athletics/Divisions in the event as the Day of Event Membership participation increases and as a result less Day of Event membership revenue per person is returned to BC Athletics.

The materials referenced in the above value-in-kind benefits would be a responsibility of the association.
