At Mini Meet#1, W60 Karla Del Grande and M70 Tony Powell both broke the CAN records in the 50m Karla ran 7.51 – breaking the old mark of 7.73 set by Carol Lafayette-Boyd SK in 2003. Tony ran 7.50 – breaking Mike Morris’ 7.57 mark from 2012. The University of Toronto Track Club set a ONT record in the M60 4X200m (Peter Zowkewych, Duncan Greenshields, Doug Smith, John Helliker). Congratulations to these Masters Runners. Why not give it a try? Future meet dates are Jan 19, Feb2, March 9 and March 15-16. Details here.
