Show Notes

Kirsten Parker is the host of Women Run Canada where she talks with Olympians, running legends, race directors and community builders who share our passion for this fantastic sport. Carolyn even had the pleasure of co-hosting an episode with Kirsten where they interviewed her hometown running Shero, Paula Wiltse.

In this episode we pull back the curtain on:

  • Her decision to start the podcast
  • How she books such incredible guests
  • Whether she ever gets star struck, and 
  • Who’s still on her dream guest list. 

In her day job Kirsten is the Operations Manager for the Manitoba Marathon. We get into the challenges of event management during a global pandemic and what changes we can expect as in-person races start to return. 

Kirsten began running in her late 20s during a Winnipeg February (pretty hardcore!) and has racked up her fair share of miles on Garbage Hill on her lunch breaks. As a runner, event manager and podcaster she is certainly giving back to the running community in more ways than most.
