Commonwealth Championships

Just found an important announcement on the Commonwealth Championships website which reads:

"It is with great pleasure we announce the sanctioning of the 2nd Commonwealth Mountain and Ultra Distance Running Championship by the Commonwealth Games Federation.
Norm(an) Wilson. Chairman of the Commonwealth Championships met with delegates of the CGF and secured the sanctioning last week. He says, "This was not a straight forward process. I had to do a lot work to ensure this application was successful."
The event is scheduled for either 2011 or 2013. The Commonwealth Championship committee is currently looking at bids to host the event."

This is excellent news.  The five days I spent in Keswick last September were incredible.  The whole atmosphere surrounding the events was fantastic and the friendliness amongst athletes from different disciplines was truly amazing.

Definitely something to look forward to.
