Runners With Attitude is a supportive, extended family. Club leaders Lynne and Rob have established a spring trail-running clinic to help runners prepare for gnarly local trail races like the Northern Alberta 5 Peaks Trail Running Series, the Blackfoot Ultra, the Sinister 7, the Death Race and the Grizzly Ultra. The RWA clinic takes members on hilly mountain runs around Edmonton’s River Valley and includes informational speakers, yoga classes and the club’s famous potluck after weekend runs.
RWA hosts evening tempo runs during the week and long runs on the weekends—even in extreme Alberta winter weather. At Thanksgiving, RWA host a turkey trot where runners donate turkeys and other meal items to less fortunate families in the community.
Running the Trails
Running the Trails is led by Jennifer Faraone, avid trail runner and 5 Peaks Fan. Jennifer leads various trail running clinics throughout the GTA as well as an annual Trail Running Retreat in Hockley Valley (scheduled for October 2015). Some of the clinics are aligned with the Southern Ontario races so that runners can gain some helpful tips and check out the terrain prior to each race. Jennifer loves sharing her passion for the trails with others, whether it be someone venturing out on the trails for the first time, or someone looking to further unleash their inner mountain lion.
