Run clinics to help you train

Everyone starts somewhere – sometimes it’s the couch, and sometimes it’s the desire to shave a few minutes off your half marathon time. Whether you’re just starting out, looking to up your game, or try something new, check out our running clinics for the know-how to get off to a running start.

Run crew routine

Want to meet other runners in your city? The MEC run crew is a nation-wide pack of everyday athletes with local chapters in Ontario. Our mission is to enable runners of all ages and abilities to get outside and get running, and inspire them to chase a PR, try a new trail route, or tackle a race, be it 5 or 50K.

Essential gear

Have fun, no matter what race distance you’re aiming for.
