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.

Running Wisdom....
I lost 20 pounds and gained not a small amount of pride from the year's accomplishments -- people who never would have told me I was getting fat were commenting on how trim and healthy I was looking. I actually had someone tell me recently that her 75 pound weight loss was inspired by my 20 pounds. And I turned another friend onto running this spring -- she told me: "If you can make time to do this with a full-time job, a wife and a child, then I have no excuse". She's run two 5K races this summer, and she seems to be getting a lot of satisfaction from getting out there. (BaldGuy)
