CLUB NEWS & UPDATES:

Outdoor Fall Cross Country (XC) Season

Starting October 18th the venue location for our Wednesday’s Jumper workout will move indoors to the Toronto Track & Field Centre (TTFC) for the remainder of the season.

Please note that because of this venue change the Jumper workout hours will change to the normal indoor hours of 6:30-8:00 pm.

The venue location change for Wednesday’s Jumper workout does not affect Monday’s XC workout at the Stouffville Arena & Track from 6:00-7:30 pm, or Thursday’s XC workout at Bruce’s Mill Conservation Area from 6:00-7:00 pm. These workouts will continue as scheduled through the end of the season.

Because of weather concerns the Free Biomechanical Evaluation Sessions originally scheduled for Sunday Oct. 15 have been rescheduled to Sunday Oct. 22 – the time and location will not change. Please click here for more details or to register.
