Your Run Leaders & First Run Locations


Charles Kuyper new victoria run leader

Victoria: Charles Kuyper

A proud serving member of the RCN for 41yrs, and a devoted family man. My enjoyment for running started in 2014 at the age of 52. I started training myself for a 5k, which quickly became a 10k followed by running my first RVM HM in Victoria in 2015. From that point on its all been a blur. I started running and working at Slater Running Room 2016/17 while still working for the Navy, represented the CAF during nationals 5 consecutive years and became involved in the local running culture. When I returned to Victoria in 2017, my passion was to complete a marathon and assist other runners along the way. Since that time I have completed well over 100 live/virtual events, and assisting others in achieving their goals. I am a member of the CFB Esquimalt Navy Run and Navy Bike committees and over the past 2 yrs an Army Run Ambassador. Currently leading and organizing the Wednesday Run Club in the Victoria area. I can't wait to meet you and let me assist you along the way!

Run Leaders Vancouver

Vancouver: Tania Beaupit

I started my running interest when I joined the Running Room Half Marathon clinic in 2014. I met two wonderful Running Room coaches, Justin and Chris. From that point I fell in love with running. The community is so supportive and beautiful. I ran many half marathons and became interested in running full marathons. In 2018, I ran my first full marathon in Maui and ran a total of 9 marathons in 2018. I had new goals for 2019, to run a 50km and more. I have now completed multiple 60 km races and ran an 80 km virtually in 2021. I am happy to give back to the community and look forward to meeting new and current runners and sharing our experiences together.

Run Leaders St Albert

St. Albert: Warren Footz

This all began with walking into the Callingwood Running Room in 1996 to sign up for a Learn To Run Clinic. What I thought would just be 10 weeks of my life, never stopped. Now many marathons later- in Kelowna, Victoria, Vancouver, Edmonton and New York City - a ton of other distances, more than a few triathlons - including a couple shots at the Canadian Ironman Triathlon in Penticton – I'm still at it. 16 years ago I took on the task of instructing clinics. The biggest rush still, is seeing those that have taken clinics or just joined us for a run club run, continuing to run. This has become a huge part of my life, no matter how many times I've stumbled and have taken the odd break, like that first love, I've always returned.
