    Hello T1s/T2s,

    Allison is on the way! She lands Monday night, so we are now into the full program of 3 sessions per week.

    Fall is in the air and before you know it we will all be skiing. With winter just around the corner, it is time to think about race suits and club jackets. The club suit order/ sizing night is October 2nd. More info under announcements at the top of the forum.

    The plan for this week:

    Monday (22): 5:00-6:30pm. The Birkebeinerrennet comes to Canmore. It will be up to you to save the baby king (just like the old Norwegians back in 1206AD) Bring your running shoes, drink belts, and a snack for after training. Meet at the team room.

    Wednesday (24): 5:00-6:30pm Allison’s first session! Bring your running shoes, water bottle/belt and ski striding poles.

    Saturday (27): 10am sharp CNSC club hike. Be there. See the details below:
    All athletes, coaches and parents of the ITA-TA-TT-LC-PC programs are invited to join in a fun club hike around Tent Ridge in Kananaskis country on Saturday, September 27th. This hike traverses the Tent Ridge horseshoe taking in three summits with one section of easy scrambling. Views of Robertson, French, Sir Douglas, Commonweath, Birdwood, Smuts and The Fist are part of the reward.

    This is “one of the most enjoyable ridge walks you will ever take,” according to the Gillian Daffern’s Kananaskis Country trail guide.

    TT-LC-PC will hike in a clockwise fashion (a bit longer and some exposure) and ITA-TA will hike out and back in a counter clockwise matter along the ridge and meet the older athletes for lunch. Parents are welcome to use either route. The full clockwise hike is about 10.5km and hiking time will be 4 hours – mark my words!

    Description and photos here:

    We will meet at 10:00am at the parking lot, see below. Please be on time!

    How to get there:
    From Canmore, follow Spray Lake Rd (742) pass the reservoir until you reach the Mt. Engadine Lodge/Mt. Shark turnoff. Turn there and drive 1.8 km to the trailhead parking area. Look for other CNSC vehicles.
