During Ottawa race weekend, we have decided to put together a small team of runners whom we feel truly represent our brand. We thought it would be really interesting for us to tell their stories throughout the weekend.
You will be able to follow those stories as they unfold right here on this page!
Last year she set her best times at the Ottawa half Marathon (1h21.44) and at the Philadelphia marathon (2h51.37), in novembre 2015. This year she has focused her energies on the Ottawa Marathon held this weekend in hopes to better her PB and move to new projects.
Marlène is the blogger behind ‘Les Aventures de Marly‘, a passionate runner on the trail and the tarmac. She shares her passion on social media and on her blog, showing that everything is possible when you put the work in.
Boston PB of 2:41. Julien is a rapidly improving exciting runner who gives the elites a run for their money. Julien only started to run seriously 3 years now he’s biting at the ankles of Canada’s elite and making the Quebec elite sit up and notice him.
The short, intense nature of racing meant proper fueling in the hours and minutes leading up to the race would be critical, as no food was going to be taken on board during the race itself. My choice was to be sipping on the electro2 lightly lemon hydration tablets during my warmup, as well as a Fruit3 blackcurrant bar 30 minutes prior, and finally a Fruit2 bar right before the start to keep the energy levels high during the effort.
Ray Zahab describes his July 2019 expedition with Will Laughlin, a West-to-East transect of Death Valley. Crossing the Panamint and Amargosa Mountain Ranges, plus Death Valley itself of-course. And all of this in July, when it's hottest! So hydration strategy was key, and the product they went with was electro2 and electro3 hydration tabs.
In 2006, Canadian Ray Zahab, and two friends, Charlie Engle and Kevin Lin, set out on an expedition to cross the Sahara Desert by foot. 111 days and 7,500 kms after leaving the coast of Senegal, they completed their journey by stepping into the Red Sea. National Geographic tracked the expedition by web, as well as the documentary film ‘Running The Sahara’ was filmed to capture the expedition, and raise awareness for the drinking water crisis in North Africa. Ray went on to found Impossible2Possible (i2P) (impossible2possible.com), an organization that aims to inspire and educate youth through adventure learning, inclusion and participation in expeditions. His adventures and expeditions have taken Ray all over the world, to the most inhospitable regions on the planet.
