Team CBC Weekly Update - March 19

Posted: Mar 21, 2013 11:26 AM ET Last Updated: Mar 21, 2013 11:26 AM ET

Hi Team!

We are officially into the spring season and it sure is apparent on a beautiful evening like last Thursday when Halifax's runners and walkers were out in full force! Thank you to the small but mighty group that showed up for our first group run/walk of the season.

Run/Walk - Thursday, Mar. 21

Our second run/walk will be taking place on Thursday at 6 p.m. Again, we will meet outside of the CBC studios on Bell Road, have a brief warm-up and start from there. Our tentative route will be the figure eight around the Commons and the Citadel (yes, we need to tackle a Halifax hill!) with 3.5 k, 5k, 6k and 7.5k options.

As of now the weather looks like it will be sunny with a high of 6 degrees. There might be a bit of snow on the ground from this winter weather event, so dress appropriately!

Team CBC Benefits

The 2013 Team CBC jerseys have arrived! For those joining us on our Thursday training sessions, you are welcome to pick yours up then. If not, you can pick them up at the health and wellness session (date TBC) or make arrangements directly with Chantal or Amanda. For those of you who are out of town, you will be able to pick up your Team CBC jerseys on Friday and Saturday of Blue Nose Marathon weekend.

Join the Team

We need your help to spread the word about Team CBC! Have friends that are runners or walkers? We'd love to have them on board. Let them know that if they sign up for Team CBC on or before April 15, 2013, they'll be entered into our draw for a complimentary Blue Nose event registration. That's up to $85 worth of savings, depending on which event they participate in.

All winners of the free registration will be announced in our 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.

Questions about how Team CBC registration works? Please do not hesitate to ask Chantal or Amanda.

We will continue to have weekly updates for you and don't forget to 'like' the Team CBC Facebook page at 

See you Thursday!


Chantal & Amanda
