Join us for our annual Gan to Kingston Run Sunday, March 24.
Spring marathon on the horizon? Or do you just need to get in some serious mileage? Well, then you should consider the Gan to Kingston run. We’ll be taking groups of runners out to Gananoque, from which point they will run to Kingston, along Hwy. 2, finishing at the store (about 30 km). And don’t worry: if you intend on running, say, 15 or 20 km, we’ll have cars ready to take you the rest of the way. Finally, aid stations will be set up along the route.
This is a great run for those not going to Around the Bay, or have races planned for the spring.
Runners will be meeting at the store by 8am (try to be there around 7:45 to be safe), with the intention of arriving in Gan at 8:30.
Dalton Cote will be lending us a hand to help coordinate the driving. Special thanks to him!
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to call the store (613) 542-2410.
Join our Tempo Runs every other Saturday morning at 9:30am. Meet at Runners’ Choice where one of our staff will lead the group over to RMC for a great tempo workout. Just beginning? No problem, our staff will direct you to a workout you can manage (but still be challenged). An ol’ pro? We can find a challenge for you too. And there’s nothing like a little company to push you a little harder than you thought you could go.
Next Tempo runs are Saturday, Feb 16th and March 2nd. (Did we mention that they are FREE!)

Kingston native Dylan Wykes made his Olympic debut in the men's marathon at the 2012 London Summer Games. He posted a top-20 finish with a time of 2:15:26, making him the first Canadian to cross the line in the grueling heat.
Now Dylan has set his sights on Rio 2016 and the Canadian marathon record. Help us support Dylan as he strives to make history as the fastest Canadian marathoner of all time. Your donation will help cover Dylan's training and living costs, including his travel expenses as he competes and represents Canada at marquee races around the globe.
