PK-Kingston fall season begins in August!

We are excited to announce that Physi-Kult is open to new members as we begin our fall season in August! While new members may join the club at any time, the beginning of the fall season is a great time for athletes interested in distance running to try club training for the first time.

Despite the challenges presented by the current global health crisis, our modified summer track season was very successful as the high school group welcomed new athletes, trained consistently, and competed in several time trials producing strong performances. In assessing the season, Coach Leslie Sexton said: “while this was not the track season the athletes would have envisioned at the start of the year, I am very proud of the group’s efforts, commitment, and attitude during a difficult and stressful time. Their love of distance running and the friendships they have formed with their teammates made for a positive and fun environment at workouts and intrasquad time trials this summer.”

For OFSAA Cross Country Novice Girls bronze medallist Alex Campbell, "the Physi-Kult club has been such a phenomenal opportunity." She continues, "PK creates a positive environment that has helped me grow as a runner, teammate and individual. I'm incredibly grateful for the amazing coaches and teammates at PK and the support they've given me. PK is a place for everyone and helps you reach your personal goals, whether they're race-oriented, to be fit and healthy, or just to have fun."

Angus Skinner, a member of the Frontenac Novice Boys team (2nd at EOSSAA Cross Country Championships in 2019), said of the group: “I really like that our group is welcoming and that my training partners and coaches are always super happy to hear about everyone’s improvement. I’ve made lots of new friends through training that share the same interests as me so it’s nice to connect with them through running. I’m looking forward to meeting new runners in fall and working towards a fun cross country season.”

Reese McShane, top 15 in the Junior Girls race at the 2019 OFSAA Cross Country Championships and 4th in Novice Girls 3000m at the 2019 OFSAA Track & Field Championships, enjoyed her track season and is looking forward to the fall:
“I like being able to spend time with my friends in the group while doing the sport that I like. The group is really welcoming. I look forward to training in the cooler weather and running longer distances in the fall.”

The training group is currently open to runners in high school and late-elementary (grades 7-8, born in 2008 or earlier). For out-of-town athletes we will maintain one weekend workout throughout the season so that athletes outside of Kingston can benefit from a weekly group workout and complete the remainder of the training on their own.

Coach Steve Weiler praised the athletes for how well they’ve handled the situation this year, adding “while we cannot say for sure what lies ahead, this summer was a great success and with the support of the local community we feel fully prepared to continue enjoying our sport as a team this fall.”

The fall season will kick off with group easy runs on Thursday, August 6th and Sunday, August 9th and workouts will begin the following week. Practice times and locations for the upcoming month are listed on our workout schedule. New athletes may attend workouts for a trial period to determine if the group is a good fit for them.
