its is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Dave Carver, friend, athlete and all around good guy.
Dave passed away on Sunday May 12th from a tragic accident in London, Ontario.
I was just talking to him a few weeks ago about his return to competition after a couple of years of injuries and surgeries, and his requirements to qualify for the 2019 World 24 Hrs in France. He was looking forward to be on the team again to represent Canada on the world stage.
Beside holding the M50 Canadian Records at the 100 Mile, 6 Hrs, 12 Hrs and 24 Hrs distance, he represented Canada at the World 24 Hrs 2012, 2013 and 2015 always proud of wearing his Canada uniform. He is the type of guy that always had time to cheer you up even when he had a bad day.
An ambassador to our sport, a great athlete, awesome Race Director of the That Dam Hill race weekend, a family man and great friend, you will be missed.
Our deepest sympathies goes to family and friend in this difficult time, from the running community.
You made the TEAM, Dave, you will be with us in spirit in France in October, that one is for you.
Rest in Peace my friend !!
