Boilermaker Road Race is a classic event you can do over and over again. Billed as Worlds Best 15K Road Race, the whole town is behind this event. This was a RunK2J team Roadtrip, and we had tons of fun!
While visiting Harold’s family n WPG, we noticed there was the Manitoba Marathon happening the same weekend. Serendipity! Had to do it.
Pool swim in 50m Carleton Univeristy pool. Number of lengths depends on the event distance. For the long course the 500m swim is up & down each of 5 lanes, ducking under buoys to get over to the next. Opportunity to warm up in diving pool before the swim. Bib pick up/transition zone/post race snacks etc. all at P6 parking lot. Bike course is out & back both directions (loops) from T-zone along Colonel By. Run course is out & back along Colonel By drive.
RunK2J was well represented in Ottawa Race Weekend. Volunteering activities spread over 3 days, and we had runners entered in all 5 race categories! Thanks for everyone in participating.
The marathon course is two loops. New for 2022, the second loop is slightly different with a section on a bike path along the St-Lawrence. The course is relatively flat with only a few minor hills in old Longueuil and the ramp over the highway for loop two of the marathon.
The course starts in downtown San Francisco near the Bay and ends at Ocen Beach, which is adjacent to the Pacific Ocean (hence ‘Bay to Breakers)’. The first half of the course runs through the downtown as well as some nice residential areas. The second half is run through beautiful Golden Gate Park.
The BMO Vancouver Marathon weekend markets itself using the phrase ‘Stunning Running’. The scenery is awesome. You have views of the Coastal Mountains for most of the run and a good portion of the second half of the race is in beautiful Stanley Park.
The course takes you through four cities along the Adriatic. The first part of the race is up in Ankaran. We run down towards Koper which is directly by the water. This is when the race shines with it’s scenery. Plus, it’s flat. The section towards Izola is beautiful along the sea wall. There are some hills as we approach the outskirts of Piran. We run through an old rail tunnel and climb a several steps to a wooden bridge over sea salt collecting areas.

I always enjoy getting my gear out for the first paddle of the season – and for the past decade (or longer?) this has often been the Jock River Race, as a fun little paddle. This event draws in alot of casual paddlers, as well as a handful of serious…
Synopsis: This race is always well organized. Being my 9th time running the 30k, it was nice to go back to in-person racing with this race.
The ATB Hammer Hybrid consist of a virtual 2k, 5k, 10k and 15k and capped with in-person 30k. I did all the virtual distances during my training leading up to the 30k in-person race.
H&J: Love the fine selection of ATB Brews for the post-race recovery.
