Since XACT first started, running has always had a special attraction for us… this weekend we shall be at Sinister 7 in the Canadian Rockies. Not only shall we be telling the stories of the race as it unfolds but we shall be supporting a truly phenomenal athlete, Helene Dumais, as she races this 100 mile trail course in Southern Alberta.
You will be able to follow those stories as they unfold right here on this page and also on Instagram andFacebook, interviews and Sinister 7 coverage on our Youtube channel.
On August 12, I left for my first official ultra-trail. I had had set the bar pretty high for myself considering that I was starting with a 100 miles and you could say that I fell short. Did I succeed? No. Did I learn? Absolutely!
New to running on the trails? We’ve all been there. Whether you’re trying to switch it up from road to trails, are an avid hiker looking to cover a little more distance on your days out, or just a lover of movement looking for a new challenge, it can feel daunting getting into a new sport.
