Our Team:

Sarah & Hannah

Hannah is a multisport athlete currently in her 2nd year at Queens University, where she is on the Varsity Rowing Team. She was also a competitive Nordic skier, and has competed at 2 national championships and is a back to back OFSAA winner. In the summer, you can find Hannah gravel riding in the Collingwood area, and in the winter she spends as much time as possible Cross Country skiing at both Highlands Nordic and Scenic Caves.

Former Varsity XC athlete for both McMaster University and Mohawk College, with a BSc Kin from McMaster and a post grad in Cardiac Sonography from Mohawk, Sarah's passion and expertise lies in all things running and the human body. Sarah is also an experienced coach, and was a strength and conditioning coach at McMaster, assistant XC Coach at St. Thomas University, and a Running Room Clinic Lead. Sarah is also our Run Club Rookie Group Lead!

On top of everything else, Sarah actively competes on the road, having achieved elite status in Canadian road racing from the 5k to Half Marathon in 2021. You have probably seen her tearing up the Collingwood roads on her morning run, or getting lost on the locals trails as she expands into trail running!
