Elections 2013

Dear ACU Members, 

The last 4 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.

Armand Leblanc, Nadeem Khan and Sue Lucas have provided outstanding leadership and commitment during these formidable years and have put Canada on the ultrarunning map.

From all of us THANK YOU and all the best in your future endeavours.

The ACU has come a long way with many bumps along the road. This association belong to you, the members, so if you are interested to join a team of dedicated individuals, looking to help our sport  grow and to be involve, come on in and help us moving forward.
