Great News! Gary Robbins and Ellie Greenwood from our own Team Canada Montrail have been named Canada's top ultra athletes! Here's the letter below.
On behalf of ACU executive, I am glad to announce you that you have been named the 2008 - ACU (Assoc Of Cdn Ultramarathoners) ultrarunners of the year. Your constant in your races has been, for both of you, a great factor in your nomination.
All Provincial representatives had to make proposals with the criteria established, and at the end, the ACU executives had to make the final choice...Your are our choices!
Gary had a break out year last year in what was really his first year concentrating on Ultra's. He won the Stormy 100 Miler and placed 2nd in a bunch of others including the Mountain Masochist 50 Miler to qualify for Western States. Ellie, well I think Ellie pretty much won every race she entered.....can't say much more than that.
Congrats guys and you are already doing better this year than last year!!!
