Dear ACU Members and members of the running community,
The last 10 years have been outstanding for the ACU. Ultrarunning has taken the athletics world by storm and the recognition of the sport in the international arena has increased tremendously.
There has been an increase in the number of ultrarunning races around the world and in the IAU-endorsed world events on an annual basis.
The ACU has been delegated the sole governance of ultrarunning from Athletics Canada since 2010 and is now the sole association responsible for managing ultrarunning at a national level in Canada. Amongst its many responsibilities, the association is responsible for coordinating the national race series and selecting athletes representing Canada at the world and continental championships events as well as maintaining National Records.
The Executive is coming to the end of their elected term and it is time for National elections.
Armand Leblanc, Nadeem Khan and Joe Huising have provided outstanding leadership and commitment during these formidable years and have put Canada on the ultrarunning map. On behalf of the ACU members and the National teams, we thank them for their hard work.
