Jack has most graciously agreed to head north to pace in the BMO Nesbitt Burns Prince Edward Island Marathon Weekend and to offer his support and services to those training for this great weekend. Coach Heely will be available to answer your training questions and is also writing articles that will be posted on the site. To learn more or ask Coach Heely a question click here.
