While the weather was cold, the spirits remained high and the athletes remained focused as the 2014 Athletics Ontario Cross Country Championships were an overwhelming success. Taking place on November 16 at the beautiful Firemen’s Park in Niagara Falls, this highly anticipated event was well-represented across Ontario and will certainly be a benchmark for future provincial championships.The event, which was executed through a partnership between the Niagara Sport Commission and the Niagara Olympic Club, was special in many respects, not the least of which was due to the record number of participants who took to the course. Among the record-setting 976 entries, there were some clear standout performances across all ages and distances, highlighting the incredible distance running talent that resides in Ontario.
For all of the award winners, their victories proved even more special as Canadian Olympian Mohammed Ahmed was on-site to present the awards. Not only does Mohammed have great ties to the sport, competing at the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London, but he also has fond memories of the host facility, Firemen’s Park, where he won an OFSSA Gold Medal.

See everyone in Niagara!

The Niagara Sport Commission (NSC) has by no means been asleep at the switch when it comes to working with us to make this year’s AO Cross Country Championships a thing of beauty, always remembered.
And to improve the experience of everyone involved, they have developed a FREE, downloadable App (iOS and Android).
Here are a few basic screen shots. We encourage you to take a closer look on your mobile. Go on, just do it…
More content will continue to be added as we get closer to “the weekend”.
Let us know if you have additional requirements / suggestions / comments.
It’s a “first” for NSC and for NOC.
Starting today, the A.C. Junior National Championships are being held in Quebec.
We want our athletes to know how much we support their efforts, and those of our Coaches who work tirelessly to get them qualified and ready to belong to Canada’s best.
And to the athletes parents and guardians who quietly make sure that the right resources, encouragement, and emotion, are brought to bear in generating such success.
Please send lots of pics for the website, to motivate our athletes not at the Championships this year, and to motivate not-yet-member athletes to join the best track and field club in Niagara.
