Time To Train on MARS

It’s time to train on MARS.  Workouts leading to Around the Bay 30K, Spring Half and Full Marathons and Boston start this week.  MARSians meet Tuesday 6:15 am at Summit Centre Parking Area, Thursday at Tim Horton’s on Highway 60 noon sharp and Sunday 7:30 am from Summit Centre Parking Area.  Be sure to check the Calendar Tab the day before any run to confirm time and location as there are occasional changes.

For the month of December, try MARS out for free before getting a 2015 membership.  Come out to our Pub Run this Thursday December 11.  Run at 4:30pm, meeting behind AO.  Meet inside the pub after the run at 5:30pm.  The club executive will also have a meeting at the pub event.

2015 Memberships are now available.  Click here for details. Download forms online and go to The SportLab to process applications.  Athletics Ontario requires that club registrars process applications for club members.  If you plan to race cross country or indoor/outdoor track get a competitive membership or competitive Masters membership.  If not a non-competitive membership will suffice.  Memberships can also be upgraded if you would like to change your status at a future date.

MARS is returning to Craftsbury Outdoor Center in 2015.  We will take up to 12 high school runners to Vermont to train with Lynn Jennings again.  We will depart June 27 and return July 4.  It’s a great way to get a jump start on next season!  Details here.

MARS will be holding a half marathon time trial February 22 to help us get ready for spring races.  It is called The Chilly Hilly Half MARSathon.  Details on registration can be found here.

See you on the roads……
