RBC Training Ground At PowerPlex April 15

The RBC Training Ground is an exciting development and funding opportunity for athletes across Canada, and St. John’s has been chosen as one of the locations to host a regional qualifying event starting 10am on April 15 at the NL Sports Center (PowerPlex) on Crosbie Road.

Athletes between the ages of 14 and 25 will execute a SERIES OF WORKOUTS and their results will be measured against performance benchmarks to help identify those athletes who show the greatest potential. The four key areas to measure are SPEED (0-40m sprint), STRENGTH (Isometric Mid-Thigh Pull), POWER (Vertical Jump) and ENDURANCE (20m Multi-Stage Shuttle Run or Beep Test).

From each local qualifier, participants will be identified, based upon their athletic performance, to attend the regional final where up to 100 athletes will perform in front of national and provincial sport organization officials. Up to 50 athletes from across the country could receive additional funding, mentorship and support from RBC and the COF to fuel their passion and Olympic dreams. The top performer from each RBC Training Ground regional final will also receive the ultimate Olympic experience – a trip to the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

Dublin Rock and Roll Half Marathon

The following is from Joe Ryan regarding a 10-mile and half-marathon training opportunity leading up to the August 13 Dublin Half Marathon:
The Dublin Rock and Roll Half Marathon takes place this year on August 13. This is an absolutely wonderful race with awesome finishing medals, great t-shirts, costumes, music/bands every mile, plus all the hype and excitement of a big race. And it's in the lovely city of Dublin, Ireland! As I will be taking a group to this race I am now trying to determine if other runners may be interested in making this trip to Dublin in August. If you are interested, I will be offering a training program starting the last week in April. This will be a combined Tely 10 / Half Marathon program, since the Dublin race is just three weeks after the July 23 Tely.   Joe Ryan

If you are interested in this unique and exciting race, drop an email to josryan@nl.rogers.com by April 2.
