“For the very first time we are sold out in the Marathon event, so hopefully that means that those have registered have been training hard and will be ready to go at the start line on October 9th,” says Cathy Noel, General Manager. “For those who want to run the Marathon route there is still room in the inaugural Marathon Relay – teams of two to five people can take part. And of course we encourage everyone to pick a charity from the 18 that are participating in the CHEK Charity Pledge Program, and run for a great cause.” [MORE]

- BLOG – PACING TIPS from Marilyn & the Ocean 98.5
It’s five weeks until Marathon weekend and Marilyn Arsenault from Mindful Strides and AJ from Ocean 98.5 are back with some great tips on pacing. Going out too fast is a common issue for many runners and often we run faster than we should. This could result in bonking or, even worse, injury. This is why pacing is so important. Check out the third training tips & techniques video for some great tips. Try out our Pace Calculator here.
BLOG – Breathing Techniques!
Did you know that correct breathing can help your running? Matt from KiSS 103.1 didn’t know and so with a little help from Marilyn Arsenault, founder of Mindful Strides, he now does. In the second of our training tips series Marilyn explains where the breath should be focused, and demonstrates a simple exercise for everyone to try that could make a big difference when you run.
The hunt for the perfect sweatshirt ends here. The Classic Full Zip Fleece Hoodie is the essence of comfort with its relaxed fit and soft French terry fabric. The jersey lined hood and woven branded label give it classic style, making it ideal for getting things done – or nothing at all. This year’s pre-order piece prominently features this year’s artwork, the Steller’s Jay, by First Nations artist – Tom Spetter!
