Cochrane is home to amazing athletes and coaches and it's time we gave them the spotlight!

After receiving NUMEROUS nominations for this superstar, this week is all about Doug!

"Recently ran leg 5 of K100 and was captain of the team. Doug has been in several k100s over the years. He is currently training for an Ironman. Always shows up to Bootcamp at SprayLakes Rec and motivates everyone"

"He was an excellent team captain and always motivated us at Bootcamp- he is also training to compete in Ironman Canada this August so I can't think of anyone more deserving."

"Doug is ALWAYS supportive of fellow Bootcampers. He gathered a team of 10 runners for the 100-mile Kananaskis Run on June 25, 2022. He was supportive and encouraging to each runner on each leg of the run. He also provided weekly run meets to help with our training! He is a man who embodies health, wellness, fun, fitness, and team in all of his athletic endeavuors!"

"He trains hard, motivates everyone around him, always positive, energetic"

Way to go Doug! All your hard work has earned you a mini-golf package from Cochrane Golf Club!
