Around The Bay Training 2017 Info

Once again, I will be hosting the usual FREE Friday evening Around the Bay training clinic in 2016.

The weekly clinics are geared towards the first time Bay runner but we welcome runners of all abilities who wish to improve upon their times with training focused on the Northshore hills section of the Around the Bay course.

We run every Friday evening out of the LaSalle Park parking lot in Burlington, leaving at 5:00 PM sharp!

The Valley Inn Road Dilemma

Well, it looks like we won’t find out if we get to run the “Valley Inn” hill until just before the race.

CBC reported in December that due to work on the CN rail bridge, race organizers won’t know if the road will be open until a week or so before the race.

So much doing any training on Valley Inn Road hill this year.

Update: I’ve checked Valley Inn Road, so don’t even bother trying.  The whole hill is fenced off from the end of the bailey bridge at the bottom to the barricades at the top.  I guess we’ll all have to make do with just running all the Northshore hills over and over again.


ATB Week 1

Week 1 (5 miles / 8 km) – January 2, 2015

This week we introduce you to the Northshore east loop. This five (5) mile loop is one of the routes that we will use to get our mileage in over the rest of the training runs.

Start the run going east on Townsend Ave., down Frances Rd. and back to La Salle park along Northshore Blvd. running the same direction as you will on race day.
