This clinic is for all runners who wish to improve their running fitness level and performance. Should already be comfortable running 25-30 miles per week (regardless of pace). Includes a formal interval training session every Wednesday night, plus coaching and personal consultation from John Hill (certified Level 2 coach). Presented by the Road Running Division of BC Athletics.
For complete information and registration:
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%

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.
