Here are a few photos to give you an idea about us!
Here is the latest information about some great achievements by our club members.
LATEST: Sept 4. The club was well represented on Saturday at the Guelph Lake Subaru Triathlon. Belen Viglione Murch exceeded her recent achievement at the Grimsby event by placing First in her age group in the Try-a-Tri! Congratulations to all our "triathletes"!
Aug 20: Several of our members ran the "Moonlight 5k" race in Williamsville, NY last Wednesday and achieved some awesome fast times. Stuart Galloway and Brian Campbell were first in their age groups and Lisa Galloway second. Well done to all ten runners who represented us!
Aug 16: This past weekend Erin Lyttle and Katherine Ravensdale traveled to Mabou, Nova Scotia to race in the "Capes 100" race in the 100 mile/160 km distance. This was another fantastic achievement by these two ladies, which involved lots of challenges such as sections that were practically impossible to run, crazy hills, heavy rain and excruciating blisters, to name a few! 48 people were set to start the 100 mile race, but only 23 finished, including four of seven women, with Erin and Katherine being two of the four!
To read much more detail and see great photos, check out the blog that Erin has written about the event. This contains lots of useful information about running an ultra distance event, including fuelling, hydration, packing, foot wear, and first aid and other supplies.

Today Belen Viglione Murch competed in the Try-a-tri at the Subaru Grimsby Triathlon Festival for Women. She came second in age and 13th overall! Big congrats to Belen! Also at the same event in Grimsby, Andrea Demery finished the Sprint Triathlon in 1:39:52, easily placing in the top one-third overall! Very well done to both of you!
Aug 5: Shoutout to Brian!
One of our longtime members, Brian Campbell, is currently in first place in the "Buffalo Runner of the Year 2022" standings for the 75-79 year old age group! This is after seven of 12 races. He is not only representing our club but our country too, as the only Canadian in the group!
Aug 2: Big congratulations to member Chloe Wade!
Chloe completed the 100 miler race at "Tally in the Valley" in 29 hours, 31 minutes and 42 seconds. That's a quadruple marathon! Another great achievement!
July 17: four of our members (Rob Rintjema, Vicky Kelly, Jessica Carreau and Mark Mullally) completed a 50km section of the Bruce Trail from Queenston to Rockway in memory of Robert Carreau, Jessica's brother. Rob was an avid runner who was killed by a drunk driver in 2020. Every birthday he would run his age plus 5 km. This birthday would have been his 45th. The four runners today were given the amazing support of several other club members, through driving to the start or their cars, running alongside for a section or providing water and snacks. A special mention goes out to Laura Andres for driving back and forth all day from 6am, supporting everyone involved. The SCRRW is not simply a running club, it's a "people club".
