Alright, let's get this show on the road already! Without further ado please refer yourself to the poll on your right and have your say AND I'm prepared to take some flack for my top five...err top six choices in the poll as it was no easy task to even whittle down this far...I had no idea it'd be this tough to break it down to just six individuals!
Poll will run from today, Jan 2nd until Thursday Jan 7th, at which point we'll roll out the 'Canadian Ultra Runner Of The Year' polls. SO, please help me fill in the blanks for the candidates on that one as I know I'm missing info.
