Stephanie Doiron has informed the Board of Directors that she will be leaving her position of Executive Director of Athletics New Brunswick and of RunNB effective March 6th, 2020.

The work accomplished by Stephanie over the course of the past year is nothing short of impressive and we will surely miss her presence. We wish her all the best in her next adventure.”
“I am proud of the work we accomplished over the past year with the help of my wonderful staff colleagues, volunteers, partners and supporters. Thank you to everyone who has helped me along the way and to those who continue to help the organizations succeed. I wish Athletics New Brunswick and Run New Brunswick all the best in the years to come and I look forward to being involved in one way or another with these organizations in the future.”

Feb 10 2020 - A Message From the AC Athletes Council
This past week-end, the Globe and Mail published a disturbing story about former Canadian track and field runner, Megan Brown, and her allegations of sexual abuse against her former coach, Dave Scott-Thomas.
As New-Brunswick's Provincial Sport Organization for athletics, we want to congratulate Megan for her courage and strength to come forward and to share her story. We also want to remind our members, especially our athletes, that you have resources available to you in the event that you needed support in matters of safe sport.
One of these resources is the Athletics Canada Athletes Council made up of three athletes: Kate Van Buskirk, Charles Philibert-Thiboutot and Jennifer Brown. The Athletes Council shared a letter to all athletes today that we feel is important for you to read.
The full Globe and Mail article is available here: https://www.theglobeandmail.com/canada/article-athlete-breaks-silence-about-sexual-misconduct-of-university-of-guelph/?utm_source=guelphtoday.com&utm_campaign=guelphtoday.com&utm_medium=referral
Feb 8 2020 - NB Indoor Championships & University Invitational Recap
Over the weekend, over 340 athletes descended on Saint John’s Irving Oil Field House to mark the largest indoor competition in the Atlantic region this year for the 2020 New Brunswick Indoor Championships and University Invitational.
Most Atlantic university schools sent teams, along with club athletes and open athletes, which made for an exciting atmosphere in the field house. While the atmosphere off the track was second to none, the action on the track and in the field also spoke volumes.
New provincial records broken were as follows:
- Frank Kelly - Masters 80-84 - 800m - 4.03.25 & 1500m 8.18.03
- Calvin McDonald - Masters Age 60-64 - Weight Throw - 10.37m
- Dave Jefferson - Masters 75-79 - Weight Throw - 11.15m – Long Jump 2.65m
- Erin Vringer - U18 - 800m 2.15.92
- Sharon Peabody – Masters 60-64 60m Hurdle 15.62s – Long Jump 2.57m
Saint John Track & Field Club took home the team banner with 430 points, and Athletisme Chaleur Athletics took second with 218 points.
There were some impressive performances across the board, and we’re excited to see where athletes take the rest of the indoor season and lead into the outdoor season.
Full results from the championships can be found here:
Feb 6 2020 - MacPherson Smashes 1500m record
While Sarah MacPherson ran the one mile at the Dr. Sanders Invitational in New York last week, running an impressive 4:33.36 to meet Athletics Canada’s World Indoor Standard, the World Indoor Championships have been postponed until 2021. Despite this disappointing news, MacPherson still has something to celebrate, in running a 4:14.91 1500m split during that particular race, which would make it a new Provincial Record, smashing Genevieve Lalonde’s previous record by more than 4 seconds.
Congratulations to Sarah and we look forward to see what she can accomplish in 2020!
