Our Team Mandate

We are a group of regular people and average runners that want to encourage, support, and inspire others in the running community to keep moving forward and reaching for your personal potential. 

You don't have to podium, be the fastest, a super athlete to race or be part of a race team.

 Our team members are regular runners with the same challenges as most runners out there, like you we work, have family's, and schedule our training in-between our life commitments.

Some of us are fast and some of us are not, all of us enjoy the challenge, have fun training together, supporting each other at events and receive great joy by supporting others.

We all start in the same place when it comes to running, so we get you...

Keep going and celebrate every step.

Randi

Randi loves hiking, skiing, snowshoeing, mountain biking and trail running. I've
been trail running for 15 years; 15 years of blisters, laughter, tears, more laughter, loads of wildlife, frozen water bladders, eating lots of bacon, great friends, incredible views, more laughter and the greatest feeling in the
world - exhaustion mixed with pride. It is so incredible to know that my body is
able and willing to do what my heart wants. I am so thankful that I have friends adventurous enough to enjoy trail running and the outdoors with me!

Josh has been an athlete his whole life, but it wasn't until 4 years ago that he discovered his love for time on the trails. If he's not out running, he's likely at the rink, or soccer field, with one of his two boys(Luke and Lane).
