Tim Lethbridge's Recreational Interests
During the period of my work at BNR and my PhD studies, I became involved in several
recreational persuits. Many of these I have continued.
- In the late 1980's I ran in several marathons (including the
National Capital Marathon), my best time being 3:11.
- I have skied many times in the Canadian Ski Marathon (a 2-day,
170km) cross-country ski event.
- I went on many hiking, cycling, canoeing and cross-country skiiing
events with the Ottawa Outing Club. Most memorable of these were trips to
- I have been involved with the Ottawa
Hostel Outdoor Club as both a participant and leader. This is a
non-profit group that organizes hiking, canoeing and skiiing trips. Most
trips are in Gatineau park, with a few being further afield.
My favourite outdoor passtime remains mountain hiking. Whenever I
encounter a mountain that is climbable without technical equipment, I cannot
resist the urge to go to the top. I especially enjoy the Rockies, but
the Adirtondacks are nearest.
