2008 Atlantic Cross Country Championships

There is a 5km race for women and a 6km race for men on Saturday, October 25th. The women start at 10am, while the men start at 10:30.

All races will be held on the U de Moncton soccer fields and the arboretum behind the residence LaFrance. The course is grass with uneven footing and quite hilly.

The cost is $10 per individual. Participants are asked to complete their registration on-line by going to the Athletics NB website at www.anb.ca and clicking on the on-line registration section. This will be open until October 23. When entering your Team Name on the second page of the registration, choose “Independant“. If you register the day of the race, you will be charged a late entry fee of $5. You’ll need to sign-in at the meet before your race. The sign-in is open starting at 8:30am. I would suggest getting there at least 30min before your race time.

The top 3 finishers in each age class (Juvinile, Junior, Senior, Masters) will receive medals.

Student therapists will be available on site. CEPS building is available for changing/shower. Washrooms (port-a-potties) will be located on site and at Champlain library across the street.

CrossFit Moncton will be closed on Saturday, as some members will be participating in this event. This is a great way to put our training into practice, so come on out and join us. If you have any questions, please contact me.

    Good job for the WOD Jeanette…PR by 4:47 is awesome!

    How Krista made up on Filthy 50s?

    Will you do the Cross Country Championship with us saturday?

  3. Thanks Pierre.

    Krista had a good time too… 35:41 (or something like that).

    I’m not sure if I’ll do the run this Saturday. I’m still thinking about it. A cross-country 5k sounds like a nightmare to me.

    Filthy 50s as prescribed
    time 35:40

    I’ve only done a ‘version’ of the 50s before way back in january that looked a bit like this:
    NO box jumps, NO jumping pullups, 20lb swings, walking lunges, knees to elbows (only did half to elbows), 35lb push press, 4kg wall ball, burpees (on knees), 250 single skips. my time was 33:40

    so i’m VERY happy with my time yesterday!!! trying to stay on pace with jeanette was definitely a motivating factor!

    plus i had gone for a 2 hour mountain bike ride in hillsborough in the afternoon

    i can’t do the run saturday, i’d like to but i have a photo job starting at 11 that i should be fresh for.

    Just finished runnning 5k…I didnt do a PR but the route I did was a lot more hilly than my last 5k.

    Last 5K: 22:52

    Today 5k: 23:02

    I guess that if I would have done the same route than my last run, I would have done it in about 22:00.

    I am ready for saturday now. 🙂

    I also ran a 5k today. Clocked out a route on my way home from the soccer game and made sure it had some hills in it.

    20:47

    That includes being scared shitless by a crazy dog…

  7. Kevin

    Man, every muscle in my body tightened right up. It was a big ass German Shepard off his leash.

    Anyone else joining us on Saturday?

    ahh dogs, whether you’re running or on a bike, they are a great motivator. i had one get close enough to nip my shorts on my bike this summer.

    i find there’s usually an all out sprint to get away / dog chasing session about once a month on the bike. keeps you alert!
