Canada's Online Running Community

Welcome to! Running Mania is an online community of runners from across Canada with the purpose of encouraging and supporting runners of all ages and abilities. We welcome beginners, elites, and everyone in between to join us in sharing our knowledge, enthusiasm, and experience with each other. We also have a very enthusiastic group of multi-sporters in our midst, so you can connect with others involved in duathlons, triathlons, and the like.

Route Maps

We now have a growing collection of running route maps, submitted by our members. (more)

Running Wisdom....
I am stronger and fitter than I have ever been. I keep running because I love it, it is my release, it makes me a nicer person, it calms me down, it makes me sleep great and makes me feel ok about eating some not so good things. I run because I love the look on peoples faces when I say I am going out for a 25k run, for fun!! I run because my nieces think it is cool! I run because my Dad used to be an avid runner, till he had his heart attack this year - he keeps me going! And, I also keep running because I like the way it makes my body look and feel, i don't feel so self-conscious about things, I wear what I like and I am just much more confident - in everything. So, basically it is a total addiction, I cannot see myself stopping.....BRING IT ON!!!! (jbenson)
