Alright folks... it's that time of the year again! Time to submit your choices for the spring race. Members have voiced their preference of races that have multiple events to reach as many members as possible...
Write your choices below and the survey will go out in about a week.

Cornwall or Ottawa sound good. I'd like to keep it a reasonable distance from Montreal. But that's just me.

Cornwall should not have been on the list of the Club's official choices. We should not go back to the same location on two successive years as we did for the Petit Train du Nord. What happened to variety and exploring new adventures? But if some members want to do a different distance there, then they are obviously free to do so.

Aldo are you making up rules? If everyone feels the same way as you they will surely not vote for Cornwall. There is no rule written anywhere that we can't do the same race two years in a row???

I voted Cornwall because it is a great cause and they did a great job. However, I did decide I won't be doing a Spring Marathon next year so half it is.

Let democracy rule!

You are right Aldo, but if you want to stay close to home, offer a race with all distances so
everyone can attend and stay within Canada it seems to eliminate quite a few options. I
like you have run Ottawa, Cornwall, Mississauga and Toronto several times over the years but
not everyone is in the same situation so let’s see what happens with the vote.
Aldo, I do want to run the “Toad Race” in 2019 and a few trail races that I proposed to Stephanie.
