Record Number of Participants Highlight 2014 AO Cross Country Championships

Courtesy Niagara Sport Commission:

Finishers from 2014 AO XC ChampsWhile 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.

Very special (free) movie screening at AO XC Champs, Saturday Nov 15th


We’re very happy to announce that the filmmakers of the feature documentary Transcend, starring Boston Marathon Champion, Wesley Korir, will be holding a FREE screening for all AO participants Saturday night.

The film is 73 minutes long and it’ll start at 7PM SHARP so athletes will be back early! So book an early dinner reservation and bring them all over for what is guaranteed to be an inspiring evening.

Details: Saturday November 15th; 7PM Start Time; Ramada Plaza on Lundy’s Lane

Cost: AO Runners: FREE – Show BIB # at the door; Coaches/Parents: $10 recommended donation

As Malcolm Gladwell (Best-Selling Author) says, “Transcend is a film about a runner that ends up being about so much more: faith, service and courage. I was riveted.”

You’ll have the opportunity to purchase the BluRay/DVD ($20) and Kenyan bracelets ($15) both at the cross-country course and after the screening. Come to the screening and get the filmmakers to sign your copy!

Three winters cold and grey --
And then it's not so long to go
That wild November day!"
