Running Room

As Running Room celebrates 35 years in business, we wanted to capture the true spirit of the community it has built and remind Canadians that, no matter who you are, there is room in your run for something.

Chris' story

In 2017, Chris (our subject) was diagnosed with thyroid cancer that infected his trachea, requiring major surgery to remove it and leaving him without a voice box. This last year, Chris' love for his Running Room Learn-to-Run Clinic community and his drive to fight the title of "cancer survivor" got him back out running. We were honoured to share Chris' story and hope this will inspire others across North America to overcome their perceived obstacles. As Chris would say, "There's room in your run for recovery."
