(Whistler, BC) – Mizuno Canada is showing their support of the Callaghan Valley Training Centre (CVTC) by providing footwear and summer training clothing for the team.

“We all know the Canadian Winter is exceptionally long, but the few months of summer require a lot of running and alternative forms of training for our athletes.  This is why Mizuno’s support means a lot to CVTC athletes and coaches,” commented head coach, Chris Manhard.  The team averages more than 10 hours of running each week when there is no snow available for ski-specific training.

First year team member, Colin Foley says “the Mizuno running shoes are very comfortable.  We’re all enjoying the performance shoes, especially on the technical trails around Whistler.  The other major benefit of this relationship is that, as young gentlemen, we can never have to many sets of clean clothes to fall back on.” 

Mizuno representative, Ben Kotanen says the partnership was an easy decision: “We are happy to support a team as motivated at the CVTC.  They’re not only elite athletes and good guys, but also working hard to integrate themselves into the Whistler sport community.”

The National Development Centre - Callaghan Valley Training Centre (CVTC) is a high-performance training center working within the framework of Cross Country Canada.  CVTC’s mission is to produce successful skiers at the World Cup level, by providing a concentration of world-class training facilities, coaching and sport science resources for cross country ski athletes.  Whistler Sport Legacies provides facility and training support for CVTC, which directly contributes to the team’s ability to perform internationally.  For more information on CVTC, please visit
