1998 Track Schedule

This year, the CBTL will not be running too many races due to rebuilding our internal infrastructure. In other words, we are just trying to get our stuff together after the last few years. In past years, we have run a number of national races, including hosting the Tim Hortons Canadian Track Nationals (most recently in 1997). We hope to be able to run more races next year. 

Training Times

Saturday (9am to noon), and Tuesday (6pm to 9pm) the track will be booked for open training time for all CBTL members. 

Thursday Night Races

Every Thursday night (6:30pm to 9pm), we will run races open to all CBTL members.
