2005 BC Athletics Annual Awards Nomination Forms

Deadline for nomination: November 30, 2005

2006-2012 Strategic Plan - DRAFT - of the identified Foundation Components and Critical Elements that are proposed as the framework of the 2006-2012 Strategic Plan.

The BC Athletics Planning Committee (Chair, Jim Cummins, Jim Gallagher, John Bird, Tom Hastie and BC Athletics staff Brian McCalder) would like to present, as a first step in the process of membership involvement and consultation, the 2006-2012 Strategic Plan - DRAFT - of the identified Foundation Components and Critical Elements that are proposed as the framework of the 2006-2012 Strategic Plan.

The presentation contains 4 main areas:

  • Preamble to the BC Athletics Strategic Plan - Setting the Environment
  • The identification of the Foundation Components of:
    • Athlete / Participant Development
    • Competition / Participation Program
    • Officials
    • Coaching
    • Organizational Capacity
  • Guiding Statements for each of the Foundation Components that help set the framework to guide the Critical Elements of each of the Foundation Components
  • Critical Elements - which have been identified as a critical component essential for success within each of the Foundation Components

The Planning Committee has presented this draft to the Board of Directors who have approved it in principle. The next step is to have the membership (clubs, individuals and association committees):

  • review the presentation
  • ask questions of the Planning Committee
  • make recommendations for additions and changes which the planning committee will receive, review, consult with the individual, club or committee on in order to determine how this best fits into the plan.
  • validate the:
    • direction the plan has taken
    • Foundation Elements (notwithstanding any recommendations or proposed changes)
    • Critical components (notwithstanding any recommendations or proposed changes)

This is a very critical step in the planning process as it sets the framework around which the Goals, Objectives, Strategies, Actions/Activities are developed. It is the foundation and framework of the plan and the Planning Committee needs your input.

The intent of the Planning Committee is that the Strategic Plan should be Robust, Dynamic and Flexible.

You can direct any questions to the following members of the Planning Committee:

Your replies, feedback and recommendations of additions and changes should be sent to: all of the Planning Committee members by October 3/05.

Thank you very much for taking the time to review, input and being involved in the future direction of BC Athletics and Athletics in British Columbia.

Runners Survey Results

Here are the results of a survey on what runners look for in a race.


If a race is timed using a chip system which do you think should be used as your "official" finishing time / place and the time used for age awards scoring, the gun time (time from the start of the race until you cross the finish line) or the net time (elapsed time from the time you cross the starting line to when you cross the finish line)?

Official time should be gun time: 102, 16.2%
Official time should be net time: 533, 84.6%


A race with 5000 runners and using the chip system could pay close to $15000 to time and score the race. How important is it to you to actually be timed and scored in a local short distance (5K or 5M) race (say a digital display clock was positioned at the finish where you could see your finishing time).

Extremely important: 104, 16.5%
Important: 219, 34.8%
Marginally important: 179, 28.4%
Not important: 132, 21%


If a runner wins an award in one category and also qualifies for an award in another category (for example a 40-year-old places 3rd overall and 1st in the 40-49 age category) should that runner receive both awards or should they only receive the greater of the two awards and be eliminated from the other category?

Runner should receive BOTH awards: 260, 41.3%
Runner should only receive one award: 373, 59.2%


7:00 pm to 9:00 pm Monday, November 21, 2005
Roundhouse Community Centre, 181 Roundhouse Mews (Pacific Blvd @ Davie St.)

Cross-training is a powerful tool to get a competitive edge in your running and to avoid 2 negative consequences of training: over-training and burnout. Cross-training is defined as using another sport, activity or training technique to help improve your performance, in this case running. Attend this presentation to learn how cross-training can enhance your running.

Wendy Epp, one of Vancouver's leading sports physiotherapists and Christine Fletcher, podium finisher Ironman Canada 2005 will discuss the practicalities of cross training and how it can lead to new performance outcomes! Wendy will give specific examples on techniques that she uses in her clinical role. Christine will motivate you with how the diversity of activities enhances your total fitness and ultimately benefits you to reach new levels of sport success.

Christine Fletcher is a professional long course triathlete training and living in Vancouver, BC. In 2003, Christine entered the professional circuit and was named Top Female Triathlete by both Triathlon British Columbia and Triathlon Canada and went on to take the national and provincial championship titles that same year. Christine is a nine-time Ironman competitor, including four times in Hawaii at the World Ironman Championships. Most recently, she placed third at Ironman Canada and grabbed the title at the inaugural Desert Half Ironman in early July.

Wendy Epp (B.Sc.P.T.) is a registered sports physiotherapist in the Province of BC. She has practiced in the lower mainland for over 13 years and specializes in orthopaedics and Sports Injuries. She has lectured for the Sun Run Training Clinics and Sports Medicine Council of BC. Wendy has worked with professional athletes from various sports and was a member of the Canadian Health Care Team for the 2002 Winter Olympics and Paralympics (Salt Lake City) and is a member of the Canadian Health Care Team for the 2006 Winter Olympics and Paralympics (Torino). She served as president and member at large for Sport Physiotherapy BC for 5 years, and sat on the National Committee for Sport Physiotherapy for 2 years. When not fixing other athletes, Wendy is a middle distance runner, triathlete and Ironman athlete - always injury free. Wendy practices at FORM PHYSIOTHERAPY in Vancouver.

Upon completion of the question and answer segment of the seminar, some lucky people will walk away with great running gear compliments of Forerunners.

Canadian Masters Athletic Association Records

The Canadian Masters Athletic Association keeps Canadian Records in five-year age groups from 35-39 and older for men and women in the following;

  • Indoor track and field
  • Outdoor track & field
  • Racewalking (road & track)
  • Relays
  • Multi-events (decathlon, etc)
  • Roadrunning (men 40-44 +)

The CMAA also publishes the current marks in the annual Canadian Masters Record Book, published in May.

If you have broken a listed CAN record, you have to fill out an application to let the CMAA know of your achievement. Certain details are required – wind readings, photo timing, downhill courses, certified throwing implements, etc, that affect the validity of a potential record. Records and application forms are on the CMAA site

Please take the time to submit an application to help keep the records up to date.
