Can my event be listed on the calendar, even though it is not a Chargers supported event?
Sure! The guideline for acceptance is any event that is of potential interest to the Club's members, and suitable for our many young members.

A reply will be sent by email letting you know that the request was received. This process is not automatic and may take several days! The sooner you make your request, the better. If your event is listed, it is appreciated that you check it for accuracy; notify us of any updates; and provide a link (preferred) or an electronic copy of your results.

What do the and other logos mean on the calendar pages?
This means that the race organizers have measured the course in a manner specified by a governing body. In the USA, this is usually the USA Track and Field, while the Althletics Canada organization certifies Canadian courses. Absence of a logo means that the certification information could not be verified.

How early may an event be listed on the calendar pages?
An event is listed as soon as the date is definate, and usually no more than ten months in advance.

There are also other factors, such as body build that are not taken into account.
