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.

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.

Whitby: Lori Williams
I am an avid runner! I have been running for over 14 years, with experience in both road and trail running. I started running as a way to keep busy when I quit smoking and ended up with another habit - a running habit! I have done over 20 half marathons, over 5 full marathons, and 4 50K races. Yes! I am an ultra runner! I have been an instructor at the Whitby Running Room for many race clinics and was the instructor for the inaugural trail clinic. I enjoy meeting new people, making new friends, and experiencing the joy of running. When I'm not working or running, I love spending time with my family, my dogs, my friends, golfing, camping and enjoying the outdoors.

Moncton: Michaela Forgeron
Hi everyone! My name is Michaela Forgeron, and I'm super stoked to be the Run Club Leader for Moncton Running Room! I started running when I was 14 years old as part of my school's cross-country and track & field teams and continued non-competitively after high school to challenge myself with longer distances. I moved to Moncton in 2018 from Cape Breton, NS, and getting involved with Running Room helped me meet so many runners in the area and helped me achieve my running goals! I have run everything from 5km to the marathon, and I can't wait to run more miles with Run Club!

Joined the Running Room's Learn to Run program in 2005 and have been 'running the roads' ever since!
