Fast Tracks is a Fredericton N.B.-based competitive running club (track & field and cross-country). Fast Tracks concentrate on Sprints, Hurdles, Jumps & Middle Distances. The ages of our athletes run from 10 years old to 18 years old with a few senior and master athletes to round out the mix.
Fast Tracks began back in November of 2005 with just a few members and have grown into a club with over 50 members today. Fast Tracks and its members are registered members with Athletics New Brunswick which is our governing sports body for Track and Field here in N.B.
Our athletes routinely qualify for the North American Hershey Final, Legion Nationals, Canada Games, Junior & Senior Nationals as well as compete in track & field and cross-country meets throughout Atlantic Canada, Ontario, Quebec and the New England states.
Becoming a Fast Tracker
Fast Tracks is a competitive running club. We train year-round for the three main seasons of our sport: Track and Field (May to August), Cross-country (September to October) and Indoor Track (November to March).
Our coaches try to treat each and every athlete individually, and work with them to help them reach their goals. Our track and field facilities in Fredericton are limited making it necessary for us to limit the number of members we accept, therefore, we are currently looking at individuals who are interested in competing and making track and field their #1 sport! While most of our younger Fast Trackers are involved in various sports and activities, learning how to run and how to race is either at or near the top of their priority list.
Membership and Practice Times
$235 per calendar year which includes the Athletics New Brunswick membership fee of $50. Each additional family member is $210 per calendar year. Membership Form can be found here.
Practices generally take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:30 to 6:30 with some extra training sessions (usually Saturday mornings) added on as we near peak periods in our training schedule, particularly during track and field season.
We look forward to hearing from you if you are interested in becoming part of our Fast Tracks Team.... it will be a journey and an experience that will stay with you forever.

Canada's National Team, Top Athletes and Scholarships
In 2009, one of our athletes competed at the IAAF World Youth Championships in Italy in the 400 meters and was part of the Canadian record setting relay team. This same athlete went on to compete in the IAAF World Juniors which was held in Moncton NB in 2010. Since then he has become a carded athlete through Athletics Canada and is attending the University of Victoria on a full athletic scholarship. Greg is currently working with the national training centre in Victoria BC on a program to prepare this athlete for the 2016 Olympics. Another one of our athletes acquired a full athletic scholarship to a Division 1 school in the USA in middle distance while two others are attending Canadian Universities (McGill & Dalhousie) on partial scholarships. Many of our athletes will no doubt be following in the same footsteps. One of Greg’s main focuses is to try to secure scholarships for as many athletes as possible from both Canadian and USA Universities.
