2015 Athletics Ontario Cross Country Championship Wrap Up


Athletics Ontario
The 2015 Athletics Ontario Cross Country Championships turned out to be an enormous success, thanks in no small part to Etobicoke TFC who joined us in co-hosting this year’s event.

With 995 athletes in attendance, and a hearty dose of vitamin D for all athletes, coaches, officials, parents and spectators to share, there is much to celebrate following yesterday’s Provincial championships.

Fast Five:
