runVictoria Online Training Group
We are starting an online training group this year using Facebook. The runVictoria Online Training Group is the virtual training community for those running this fall’s GoodLife Fitness Victoria Marathon, Half Marathon or 8K. Here we will share advice, interesting articles, and training tips. We will coordinate group runs and meet ups too.
And not only is it FREE to registrants but it is also hosted by Bruce Deacon, our online coach for the last 7 years.
Bruce Deacon is a two-time Olympic marathoner and winner of a silver medal at the 2003 Pan Am Games. With a personal best of 2:13:18, he has represented Canada at 4 World Championships, with a best finish of 11th place. When he last ran the Victoria Marathon, he had a run-away win in 2004 in a time of 2:21.
Bruce currently coaches adults and teens in the Victoria area. He still races and does well at the master’s ranks (40+).
** We will be opening up the runVictoria Online Training Group on Facebook shortly. When we do, if you have registered for one of our events, you will receive an email with instructions on how to join.
