FALL MARATHON TRAINING CLINIC STARTS NOVEMBER 6
This marathon training clinic is for recreational runners wanting to
train and compete in the upcoming 2005 Vancouver International Marathon,

as our approach will focus on the development of an athlete's consistent
or average race pace rather than the accumulation of total volume of
mileage per week.
The program is led by Carey Nelson, former Canadian National Team
Member, coach with Metro Athletic Club and a leading marathon authority in
British Columbia. Carey has run competitively for Canada over 20 times,
including in the '88 and '96 Olympics, in the 5,000 metre and marathon
runs, respectively. He also won the '91 Houston Marathon in 2:12:28.

The City of Port Alberni is the only community in BC to have hosted
four BC Games events, including the recent 2004 BC Winter Games. Mayor Ken
McRae understands the benefits. "The BC Games created a network
volunteers, inspired our young athletes, and contributed to first class
facilities. Through the BC Games our community acquired the infrastructure
and talent necessary to accomplish great things."
From the local playground to the Olympic and Paralympic podiums, the BC
Games are part of the rich fabric of sport and physical activity in BC.
"BC's best developing athletes and coaches attend the Games on their
path to athletic excellence," said the Honourable John Les, Minster

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:
- 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.)
- 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.
- The new Day of Event Membership Fee sharing schedule is:
||Number of Day of Event
|Fees Retained by Event
||Fees Remitted to
||The first 500
||$1.00 per Day of Event Mbr.
||$2.00 per Day of Event Mbr.
||The next 500
||$1.25 per Day of Event Mbr.
||$1.75 per Day of Event Mbr.
||The next 1000
||$1.50 per Day of Event Mbr.
||$1.50 per Day of Event Mbr.
||The next 2000
||$1.75 per Day of Event Mbr.
||$1.25 per Day of Event Mbr.
||$2.00 per Day of Event Mbr.
||$1.00 per Day of Event Mbr.
- 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:
- that the more retained by the sanctioned event the more the event
can provide to grow their participation and/or quality of their event;
- 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
For the sanctioned events the benefits, financial and in-kind benefits
(in addition to the standard benefits already provided) include and in no
- an incentive to help grow participation in the event through the
establishment of a new sharing formula for the day of event membership
- enabling prize money or enhanced prize money through the retaining
of more day of event membership revenue, based on a new sharing
- 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
- 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
- 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
- association/division information - in participants event/race
- 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
- 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
- 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.
