JULY RECAP
-----------------------------------------

WOMEN'S RUN & SOCIAL NIGHT

Sarah & Hannah hosted our first ever Women's Run & Social Night to connect women in the running community and to raise proceeds for Fast and Female, a Canadian non-profit organization supporting females in sport! This event wouldn't have been possible without the generous support of Later Pizza, Duntroon Cider, Rally Beer & Salomon.

SUMMIT CHAT WITH REID COOLSAET

We kicked off Summit 700 race weekend by collaborating with Salomon to host Canadian Olympic Marathoner, Reid Coolsaet! Reid spoke about his journey as he has transitioned from the road to the trails as an ultramarathoner.

Expanding into our new downtown location has brought upon opportunities to host community events, and July didn't fall short!

OPEN WATER SWIM

Back by popular demand, our 6 week open water swim technical course took place Monday evenings at Sunset Point Park. We had so much fun coaching, connecting and making new friends on the water.

PEAKS & TRAILS

We were a proud sponsor in the popular 6 week trail racing series that was back to in-person this summer!

Collingwood RUN CLUB

Our Wednesday night Run Clubs have been getting bigger & better! We added our Rookie Group, and had no shortage of demo nights including Skratch Labs, Iso Veda, Salomon, Nutty Hero and guest speaker, former Olympic Coach Barrie Shepley!

RUNNING SHOE DONATION BIN
Run, Donate, Save.
With your miles ran and generous donations, we were able to donate 30 pairs of gently used running shoes to Trails Youth Initiatives in Stouffville, Ontario.

Moving into September we will be partnering with The ReRun Shoe Project, founded by Olympian Julie-Anne Staehli, with a mission of “giving shoes another life to improve the lives of others”. VO2 Sports Co will be an ongoing drop off location where runners can bring their lightly used shoes to reduce, reuse, and pass on the gift of running.



Staying true to its legendary roots and trail status, this version is lighter with an even more powerful, grippy connection to the ground and faster mud evacuation. Featuring classic Speedcross comfort with a revamped upper that’s both functional and fiery.

$180
