"living and coaching natural fitness through clean oxygen fed sport."

Trail running is the perfect way to build applied core strength, cardiovascular endurance, aerobic power, agility, balance, and confidence in a pragmatic and natural environment. Free yourself from the roads and engage in a richer and more enduring experience. The program is perfect for running specialists, nordic skiers, adventure racers and multi-sport enthusiasts.

Everyone is welcome to join us for a group trail run in the Gatineau Park for FREE. The runs are suitable for folks of all levels and abilities. This is an excellent opportunity to get in shape, get outdoors, and go on an adventure with others.

We explore a different trail each week. The place and workout are posted on under group training. We try to make every run interesting.

The group size varies from 30-150 people, men and women from ages 18 to 65. The average 10k road time for the group is 60min, with the fastest people running in the low 30s and the slowest 80min/10k times.

The Tuesday run lasts approximately 1.5 hours of varying intensity/difficulty levels. Pace yourself to the degree that you feel comfortable. There are enough folks to run with. The courses are chosen so that no one gets lost or left behind.

Sunday's runs are long slow distance lasting up to 2hours. A slow run is 8kph on trails. This is also when we provide individual coaching to all who ask.

We will also be running a series of special technique clinics throughout the season.

Trail shoes, water and food are recommended. Bring a change of clothes if you swim afterwards.

Please consult the map so you know where practice is.

If you need to car pool to practice, we suggest that you post on or the group face book page.

There will ALWAYS be practice regardless of the weather. Don’t ask.

Ensure that you are on our mailing list to receive important information.
