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!
A young fast runner with huge potential. A half marathon trail specialist, as set new course record at Bear Mountain 3 weeks ago. Hoping to impress on the 10k!
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.
Tout aventure ou défi commence par un moment où l’on se dit : « ce ne serait pas pire faire (insérer n’importe quelle idée qui nous sort de notre zone de confort) ».
Débutant à la course en trail? On est tous passé par là. Que tu arrives de la course sur route, que tu sois un randonneur qui désire parcourir un peu plus de distance ou simplement à la recherche d’un nouveau défi, ça peut paraître intimidant de commencer un nouveau sport.
