The Border City Track Club originated in the 1990’s and was formed by the legendary University of Lancer Head Coach Dennis Fairall. The Border City Track Club was forged as an elite track club by coach Fairall. It was home to 1996 Olympic 200m semifinalist O’Brian Gibbons and Decathlete Mike Nolan who placed 10th in the 2001 IAAF World Championships in athletics. In 2013, the club was rebranded by Head Coach Kurt Downes as the “Border City Athletics Club”. The current BCAC splits time residing at the Dennis Fairall Field house in the winter and Sandwich Secondary high school in the summer. Windsor Essex county is home to numerous CIS National Indoor Championships and Ofsaa High School track and field Champions. While Alumni Field Stadium and Sandwich Secondary High School has played host to the Ofsaa track and field Championships, the 2005 Pan American Junior Championships, the 2007 Canadian Senior Outdoor Championships and the 2008 Canadian Olympic Trials. Former Lancer All Canadian Sprinter Leonae Nichol designed the current logo. The logo is a combination of the acronym “BCAC, the base of which is an “A” that represents the iconic Ambassador Bridge which resides in the background of Alumni field stadium and the Dennis Fairall Field house in Windsor, Ontario. Gold is one of the colours in our logo because the lanes in Windsor have been paved gold with the accomplishments of our elite level athletes and their coaches on the field, in the sandpits and on the track. TrackTown Canada has its roots in intelligent, industrious individuals and in blue-collar corporations and the metallic colour in our logo pays homage to what is good and true of the people of Windsor and Essex County.
