Accra International Marathon

For the countless forgotten children living, homeless, on the streets of Accra and elsewhere in Ghana, exposure to danger is their daily reality—danger of hunger and malnutrition; certainty that they will be uneducated and ill-prepared to overcome the many struggles of life; the probability that they will fall prey to two-legged predators who exploit vulnerable children.Life is a struggle— Ɔbra yɛ ko, as the Akans say—is a familiar truism, a fact of life daunting even for adults living with relative privilege. But a day in the life of a child living on the streets of Accra is harrowing: in inclement weather, they cower; with no assurance of adequate, nutritious food, their physical and mental growth is stunted; with little or no education, their development and future prospects are diminished; with scant protection from life’s many assaults, many perish.Without intervention from caring communities, chances are these children will continue living in danger. One such caring community resource is Chance for Children (CFC), a local charity dedicated to ensuring that, in the words of co-founder Amon Kotey, “Accra’s street children experience love and security” and receive sound educational and vocational training.Every month, CFC supports hundreds of these at-risk kids in many ways. There is the drop-in center, where non-residential kids can eat, bathe, and enjoy at least temporary respite from street life. There are also secure, residential marathoners running in the rain facilities, where over 60 children are boarded under caring adult supervision and are able to complete schooling in relative safety. There are opportunities to undergo vocational training or further studies to enable these children to take control of their lives and become productive members of their communities. Where appropriate, Chance for Children also supports numerous youths in their family settings and reaches out to administer to hundreds of children on the streets.Once again, the Accra International Marathon (AIM) is AIMing to Care for our Children by supporting CFC as one of this year’s Charity Partners. Chance for Children offers at-risk street children the opportunity to be safe, loved, well fed, and better equipped to increase their chances of developing their potential and achieving happiness.The AIM Charity Partner matching funds program supports those who help themselves by matching funds raised by the Partners. Charity Champions champion the cause in various ways. This year, you can AIM to Care as a Charity Champion simply by registering a relay team or teams to participate in AIM, scheduled for October. You will be supported to achieve your victory, and you will enjoy the accolades and celebration that is the due of every champion.

USA Triathlon CEU Approval Application

All USAT Approved CEU courses will be evaluated using standards that take the following into consideration: Length of the course Format of the course (lecture, practical, online, etc.) USAT Certified Coach Presenters Topics being covered Because of the change in evaluation, some courses may receive a different number of CEUs than in years past. We believe enforcing this new evaluation standard will create a more consistent approval process that can be applied impartially to every application. USA Triathlon reserves the right to assign or deny a CEU value to seminars and conferences. CEU values are based upon relevancy to triathlon coaching and are assigned by USA Triathlon, not by what another organization assigns. CEUs will not be awarded to courses that are deemed to be in direct competition with existing USAT programs. Examples include webinars, symposiums, mentorship programs, and triathlon coaching certification programs among others. USAT CEU approval is valid for one calendar year. For instance, regardless of when you submit a USAT CEU Application in 2017, once your course is approved, it is approved until 12/31/17. If you would like your course approved for the following calendar year, you must go through the USAT CEU Application process again. By submitting a USAT CEU Application, you are agreeing to waive all fees for up to three USA Triathlon staff members to attend any clinic. If a USA Triathlon staff member decides to attend your clinic, you will be notified by the staff member in advance. By completing this application, you agree to only promote CEU amounts as determined by USA Triathlon staff. Failure to use the provided certificate of completion or promoting incorrect CEU amounts will result in the course no longer being approved in future years. For any USAT CEU Application questions, please contact Linda.Cleveland@usatriathlon.orgEvent details and schedule

Ruenes Trail

Espectacular la carrera de Ruenes de este fin de semana, por varios motivos, recorrido muy técnico, de los que me gustan, sólo hay que mirar lo que tardé, 2h32min en 20 kilometros, para darse una idea, un pueblo volcao con la prueba, y mucha gente joven en los controles y no solo en los controles, el director de carrera Alejandro Rozalén, 19 años, impresionante vamos. Mucho futuro le veo a la carrera. La carrera fue de Domingo, pero yo junto con Fran y las familias de ambos ya estábamos desde el jueves por Sotres haciéndonos de anfitrión... la promesa del trail Adán. El jueves a última hora un poco de trote para mirar con Adán, también promesa de la ganadería en Picos, sus vacas, las cuales las tiene en la canal del Jierru. Viernes de tarde, buscando un kilómetro vertical lo más corto posible, subimos desde las vegas a las Moñas y sí que salieron los mil, pero no como queríamos ya que los últimos doscientos metros de desnivel, fueron una arista muy divertida. La bajada la hicimos por el collado Camburero, increible la nieve que hay todavía.
