Rick Canning - Head Coach
Rick has been an athlete and a coach since an early age. He started competing in sprint canoeing and coached athletes at his home paddling club up to the Canada games level.
Rick started running during his canoe training and continued throughout university. In 2013 he started taking this running hobby seriously and progressed quickly from 10k races to 100 mile ultra marathons. Through this progression he learned that while there is a lot of information out there about running and training plans you can get for free, there is a more efficient and enjoyable way to train. With this realization was born the desire to share this information with others.With a formal training certification from North American Academy For Sport Fitness Professionals , Rick has been coaching runners now for 4 years.
Rick’s running passion is on the trails. He craves the challenge of a trail ultra, and has competed in many from the 50k to 100 mile distances. He also finds a simple joy in honing his speed in road marathons and shorter distance events. He believes mixing up training helps keep you motivated and evolving as a runner.
