Introducing RunLab 2.0- The Road to Scotia

Joining a community of people striving for similar goals makes it much easier to achieve them. With that in mind RunLab was born. Through the Academy of Lions Run Crew, this past January we set forth a common goal and challenge for anyone who was up for it. We chose a race which allowed runners to choose from 5km, 10km, 21.1km and 42.2km distances and put forth a training program to help them reach their goals.

We had 70+ people turn out to our launch of #RUNLAB with the intention to start this training journey together. We wanted lots of runners out there, taking the streets of Toronto together, running their OWN races for their OWN reasons, with the help of our Crew, other Crews and Cheer Squads. The idea was ‘challenge yourself, but not by yourself’

The 2016 GoodLife Marathon was a huge success and now we look forward to doing this all over again.

The Scotia Bank Marathon is on October 16th, 2016, 16 weeks away and we want to help you on your way to toeing that starting line. This coming Thursday June 30th we will be launching RunLab 2.0- Road to Scotia.  

You may be ready of a 5k, half or even FULL Marathon.  Even if you're not ready today, we'll help you get there during our 16 weeks of programming leading up to race day May 1st. 

Over the course of the 16 weeks, our crew of runners will practice & learn how to run more effectively and enjoyably, city routes and lots of hang-time included.

Two (optional) weekly runs lead by  myself, Natalie Lodge, Chris Dekoning, Dhani Oks & many other Run Crew Members will give you the support, guidance, and motivation you need to really stick with it. We all know, that joining a community of people striving for similar goals, makes it much easier to achieve them. So let's do this together! 

Academy of Lions Run Crew is OPEN TO ALL and it's 100% FREE.  We believe that doing things like this helps grow our community and gives people the motivation to train better, make new positive friends and inspire those around us. 

Challenge yourself, but NOT by yourself.
