Still Working On A New Huffin' Puffin Route

The club continues work with officials from the City of St.John's in an effort to secure a new route for the Huffin' Puffin Marathon. Great leadership by Steph Porter on this front with tons of help from Tim Turner and support from President Dave Cooper and Race Director Fabien Basset.

If we are successful in securing a new route we will have a great deal of work to do and will be calling on many others to chip in. For starters Eugene Noble will have the task of getting the new route certified as a Boston Qualifier!

If everything works out we will enjoy a new course taking in Bowring Park, downtown St. John's, and Quidi Vidi Lake! If not the route will remain the same as in recent years. So far meetings have been very productive and encouraging, and the group will present to the Special Events Committee on May 13.
