Run’s coming up close, and we’ve got to get moving!

So, on Sunday, May 17, 2009 (this upcoming weekend), we are asking that all runners and volunteers participating in the Run Across Canada to come out to the Run Trial, held at Scarborough Gurdwara (in Bhagat Puran Singh Park), at 10:00am. 

We will be simulating the actual format of the run with teams running 3 hours each. You will need to plan to be at the Gurdwara from 10am to 2pm. Dress for the weather, because, rain or shine - we will be running! This will help the runners to work as a team and for us to see what distance can be covered.

After the trials, team make up will be finalized to balance the teams and ensure that the teams can maintain a speed of 1km every 5 minutes over a 3 hour time period. 

Drivers are also required to attend to get to know the teams and to assist with keeping records of the runners.
