Thelma Wright - From Run Jump Throw to National Middle Distance Event Group Coach

Thelma Wright, Olympian, Educator and Program Coordinator has accepted a position with Athletics Canada as a Middle Distance Event Group Coach working with Brent Fougner and Wynn Gmitroski of the National Athletics Middle Distance Training Centre in Victoria. In her new position Thelma will have a shared responsibility of working with the next wave of Cdn Olympic athletes and their personal coaches. "Identifying and connecting with this group of middle distance athletes is critical to the Canadian program", stated Wright. "We need to be able to identify the athletes, provide assistance to their coaches and programs for the athletes that will help them achieve their goals and those of Athletics Canada", she concluded.

With this move, Thelma steps down as the BC Athletics Run Jump Throw Program Coordinator, a position she has had since February 2005. During her time leading RJT in British Columbia and being a leader in Canada for this grass roots fundamental movement and skills program, Thelma has fashioned a program second to none. A leader in the presentation of the program whether to children, youth leaders, teachers and coaches, she has been an enthusiastic champion of RJT, a program of basic physical literacy for children 6 to 12 yrs. "RJT applies to all sports whether it be soccer, basketball, hockey or track & field", is a phrase often repeated in her presentations to teachers and parents. Basic movement skills are the cornerstone of the Sport for Life Model for Athletics/Track & Field, which Thelma personifies through her own active lifestyle.

"We have been very fortunate to have had such great leadership for this program", said Larry Harper, Chair BCA Brd of Directors. "Her knowledge, innovation and understanding of child development have been keys to the success of Run Jump Throw in British Columbia. She has laid a great foundation upon which we can build and grow the program", Harper concluded.

Thelma's leadership in the BCA RJT program officially ends on June 30/09 as she hands the reins to Taunya Geelhoed who has been Thelma's program assistant since March.

Taunya comes to this position with a strong sport background having been a member, leader and team captain (2007/08) of the University of Louisiana NCAA Div 1 Women's Soccer Team from 2005-08. A graduate of the Mission and BC Soccer programs, Taunya brings the experience and skills of leadership and team worked learned through sport together with her work and studies in communications, business and marketing.

"We are certainly pleased that Taunya has accepted this new role with us", said Brian McCalder, BC Athletics Pres/CEO. "Her skill set together with the experience she brings from her years in soccer and time with RJT puts us in a good position to expand the program and provide the skills for children and their life time of sport and physical activity, concluded McCalder.

"I am very excited and thankful for the chance to represent the Run Jump Throw program in BC. This program is extremely beneficial to children interested in all sports and I hope to share its value with everyone. Thelma is a hard act to follow and I hope to continue to develop and build upon everything that she has accomplished for this program in BC," said Taunya.

The BC Athletics Board of Directors, Staff and Membership wishes to extend a sincere THANK YOU to Thelma and a great big WELCOME to Taunya as they embark on the next phase of their careers in Sport.

Legion Twilight Shuffle 5K - Chemainus 

The 25th annual Twilight Shuffle 5k took place in Chemainus, under ideal race conditions.

Ryan McKenzie of Victoria won the race and set a new course record with his finishing time of 14:23. Second place went to Cam Levins of the Comox Valley, and third to Richard Mosley of Coquitlam.

In the women's race 42-year-old Lucy Smith of Victoria won, breaking the Canadian Masters record of 17:02, finishing in 16:49. Following Lucy Smith was Cheryl Murphy (17:22) of Victoria, and third went to Kristina Rody (17:53) of Burnaby. Lucy finished 12th overall.

Top men's master finisher went to Shawnigan Lake's Kevin Searle who finished in 16:49, the same time as Lucy Smith, followed by former Irish Olympian, Paul O'Callaghan (17:07) and one-time Commonwealth Games competitor Gordon Christie (17:17) both from Victoria.

The women's masters race also included (after Lucy Smith over-all and master's winner) Nancy Baxendale of Shawnigan Lake (19:11) and Juliette Christie in 19:37 for third place.

Ryan McKenzie, Cam Levins and Richard Mosley ran through the first kilometer together, at this point Mosley fell off the pace and let Levins, who runs varsity for the University of Southern Utah challenge McKenzie, who owns a 5k track personal best of 13:39.

At the 2 km mark Levins dropped off the pace and Ryan ran with a solo lead for the remainder of the race, building his lead to 30 seconds by the time the dust settled from the nearby Sawmill that the 555 race participants had to run through twice before and after making the turnaround at just past the 3k mark.

The challenge for second place was a more heated battle between Levins and Mosley and it wasn't until the final few metres where Levins managed to secure his second place finish with a kick, likely honed on the Southern Utah track. Asked about his summer training plans while at home in Black Creek, Cam said, "I will be running higher mileage to prepare myself for the fall cross country season, I will be running up around 105 miles per week (165 km)".

Lucy Smith, 19 time Canadian Champion and twice the World Duathlon Championships silver medalist led for the entire race. "I find it easy to get-up for any kind of championship event, plus I like the course" said a smiling Smith shortly after crossing the line.

Performances of the day may go to either Smith who ran an age-graded performance of 91.31%, 68 year-old Herb Phillips who finished as second male to McKenzie (in age-grading) with his 19:12 or 79 year old running legend Maurice Tarrant of Victoria, who ran a time of 24:36. "I am going to start track training soon and with this race, I can start training for the 80 plus age-group" Maurice intimated.

The provincial 5K road running championship was incorporated into the Legion Twilight Shuffle, hosted by Island Runner and the Prairie Inn Harriers Racing Team, and was open to any 2009 competitive member of BCA.

Chip's Not Dead Yet Memorial Mile - Vancouver

Kenyan Haron Lagat returned to successfully defend his uphill mile crown, and with it earned another $20,000 prize.

The ten events feature races over 5K, 8K, 10K and the half marathon.

To qualify for series awards, participants must compete in a minimum of six events. Points will be awarded based on placings within 5-year age groups for men and women, from under 20 to over 70. A participant’s six best placings will determine their total points.

The remaining three of the ten series events are:

  1. July 18: Summerfast 10k, Vancouver
  2. August 2: Squamish Days 10k, Squamish
  3. August 16: Richmond Oval 8k, Richmond

For complete information about the Lower Mainland Road Race Series, as well as the individual events, visit the series website at Series news and rankings will be posted there after each event.

The Timex BC Road Running Series will continue to provide an opportunity to athletes from throughout the province to rank themselves against their peers, and serves as a selection to the Timex National Road Running Series Finale in Ottawa.

The Lower Mainland Road Race Series will be one of four regional road race series sanctioned by BC Athletics in 2009. The others being the Frontrunners Island Race Series (, the Canadian Tire Interior Road Race Series (, and the Prince George Grand Prix (
