Billy Loutit Dispatch Organizing Committee

  • Entidad colectiva
  • 2003-2010

The founding committee members were Lori Claerhout, Bud Ottosen, Heather Babiak and Al Fisher. The first Billy Loutit Winter Despatch Duathlon was held in Athabasca, AB on February 11, 2003 and the first Summer Dispatch Triathlon was held on July 26, 2003. The events honoured Métis mail runner Billy Loutit who, because of an historic flood caused by a river-ice jam, ran from Athabasca Landing to Fort Edmonton in April, 1904. He carried a message (despatch) requesting assistance from the Edmonton Hudson's Bay Co. because thousands of dollars of HBC provisions had been damaged in the flood. Billy ran the 100-mile distance in twenty-three hours. In February, duathlon participants skied and snowshoed through 45 km of Alberta’s boreal forest on a trail that included the Athabasca River, the Muskeg Creek Trail System, and historic Athabasca Landing. They carried their own packs which held 5 kg of food donations that were dropped at 5 locations along the route and then given to the Athabasca food bank. For the July triathlon, participants swam in the Athabasca Landing Pool, then biked from Athabasca to Colinton and back on Hwy 827, and finally ran a route through the Town of Athabasca and the Muskeg Creek Trail System. Summer participants could do the triathlon by themselves or be part of a team. The events were organized by Bub Ottosen and Lori-Ann Claerhout (soon joined by Heather Babiak and Al Fisher) after a chance meeting between “Young” Billy Loutit and his brother Paul, who were Billy Loutit’s grandsons, at the Athabasca Winterfest in 19XX. Loutit family members, including Shannon Loutit, were at each duathlon and triathlon. Local residents volunteered in various capacities to organize and host the events, and local businesses and organizations made donations. The names of these people and groups are recorded in the documents. The Billy Loutit winter and summer events organized by Ottoson and Claerhout ran from 2003 until 2010; the duathlon in 2003, 2004, and 2005. Lori Claerhout was also involved the Billy Loutit 100 Mile Journey marathon on July 18, 2008. Loutit family members, including Shannon Loutit, were at each duathlon and triathlon.
