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.
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
