Team CBC 2013 - 1,2,3, GO!

Hello Team!
We hope everyone is getting pumped up for the 10th annual Scotiabank Blue Nose Marathon presented by CBC and of course, Team CBC's third year! Whether you're a seasoned pro runner, a casual walker or fall somewhere in between, Team CBC wants you and your friends on board. This year you will be hearing from me, and also from Amanda MacDonald, who has joined us to coordinate Team CBC.
Weekly Runs/Walks
This year's weekly runs/walks will take place on Thursdays at 6 p.m. starting on March 14, 2013. Our tentative plan for March 14 is to run the approximately 3.5km figure eight around the Commons and the Public Gardens with the walking route circling the Commons and/or Citadel Hill. The beauty of Team CBC is that everyone is at a different level, so however you want to spend your hour is entirely up to you. Have a favourite route? Let us know! We will provide suggested routes, but are always open for suggestions and feedback.
The goal of our weekly runs/walks is not only to train for Blue Nose weekend, but also to build a sense of camaraderie within Team CBC. We want there to be a sea of red CBC jerseys running around our fair city every Thursday evening and an even bigger sea of red come May 19!
Thursday's runs/walks will be rain or shine! That said, if a cancellation should occur, we will let you know by noon on Thursday via email and Facebook.
Team CBC Benefits
Over the course of the next two and a half months, Team CBC members will receive a number of additional benefits. We are hoping to hold special fitness events involving yoga and Zumba (stay tuned), as well as a health and wellness session, tentatively scheduled for April 11, 2013 after our run/walk. Team CBC kits full of goodies in addition to your Team CBC jerseys will be available in early April. We will let you know how to get them in advance of Blue Nose weekend and where you can pick them up at the event.
Join the Team!
The webpage is now live! Sign up for Team CBC on or before April 15, 2013 and you will be entered into the draw to receive a complimentary Blue Nose Marathon registration. All winners of free registration will be announced in the April 16 weekly email. This is well in advance of the May 1 fee increase, so you will still have time to register and save.
We will continue to have weekly updates for you and don't forget to 'like' the Team CBC Facebook page at
Looking forward to Team CBC 2013 (let's giv'er!),
Chantal & Amanda
