The BON Racing Team is a running team that branched from the BON Running Club, a club from the FFP Running Clubs that now counts more than 8000 members.
The team was created in September 2011 to fulfill the need from many to have more opportunities to run and get faster. Since its creation, the team has consistently grow up, participated in many team events and won multiple awards along the way.
The main goal of the Racing Team is to provide a unique opportunity to the running club members to bring their fitness to the next level within a fun and very social environment. One of the founders and head-coach of the team, Francois Therriault-Proulx, wanted to somewhat re-create the life-changing experience he had while running for his college team: “It is not only about running. It is more about working together toward the same goal and proving to yourself you can push your limits and get better. You may not realize it while it happens, but you gain a lot of confidence doing this and even more important are the friendships that you develop along the way.”
The focus of the Racing Team is to provide anyone the opportunity to join a training group, profit from a structured training plan, have access to coaches, and participate in multiple races during the year, many of which are relays and team-bonding experiences. Runners of all abilities are welcome and encouraged to join. As part of the general running club, the Racing Team also provides the opportunity to give back to the community by actively participating in and volunteering at the many charity-based events.
