Mar 23, 2021 Episode 27
Carolyn Coffin and Kim Senechal

Kathy Wiens is the Executive Director for the Manitoba Runners’ Association and has had an avid relationship with running for decades.  We invited her on the podcast to talk about organized running in 2020 and 2021 and the challenges faced by race directors and event organizers going forward.  We get her take on the cancellation of the Stonewall Quarry Race, and what we hope will come from the exposure the planned event provided the running community with regards to Public Health Orders.  It has been one year since the world ground to a halt.  Races were cancelled, flights and hotels were cancelled, and many events flipped to virtual.  Some silver linings have become apparent in the last 12 months and one thing that has not only remained unchanged, but been amplified, is how runners are still desperate for community and seek to support each other in any way we can.
