Canada's Online Running Community

Welcome to! Running Mania is an online community of runners from across Canada with the purpose of encouraging and supporting runners of all ages and abilities. We welcome beginners, elites, and everyone in between to join us in sharing our knowledge, enthusiasm, and experience with each other. We also have a very enthusiastic group of multi-sporters in our midst, so you can connect with others involved in duathlons, triathlons, and the like.

Route Maps

We now have a growing collection of running route maps, submitted by our members. (more)

Running Wisdom....
The physical changes are nice, but the best part is how I changed my mind. "If I can do this, maybe I can do..." has become something my husband is used to hearing, which he much prefers to my old "I wish I could...." or worse: "I wish I was...." I am not the fastest runner out there, by a long shot. Most of my family doesn't get why I bother to run races and just shake their heads at me. But I have paced friends through their first tentative 1&1s all the way to their half marathons, and there is nothing better than telling someone "If you can do this, you can do...." and knowing from personal experience that it's true. And then seeing them do it. (gjennifer)
