SPEED RIVER Track & field club
The Speed River Track and Field Club (SRTFC) was founded in 1998 by Dave Scott-Thomas as a means for University of Guelph varsity athletes and other local athletes to have greater access to coaching and elite competition.
Over the past twenty years the team has grown in size and scope to accommodate athletes of all ages from across the country and has developed into the premier track and field program in Canada, winning over 40 national titles and placing more than one hundred athletes on National Teams.
