Everything About Running Expo

Clothing/Gear/Nutrition/Cross Training/Injury Protocols

Saturday, October 19th/9:30-5 p.m./ Scotiabank Convention Centre


Ray Zahab, Canadian ultra runner and adventurer has gone from being a pack-a-day smoker to becoming Canada’s top explorer. He’s run across Namibia, some of the most uninhabitable places in the Arctic, Baffin Island, the Atacama Desert in Chile, the Gobi Desert and more. It’s not uncommon for Ray to cover 50 or even 70+ kilometres a day over several weeks on his adventures.

Ray will take the stage at 2:30 p.m. to share his stories and talk about how we can achieve the extraordinary if we are willing to dream big and take action

20-30 minute moderated panels featuring different approaches to fueling for endurance sport: keto, carb periodization, plant-based whole foods

10:45 a.m., 12:15 p.m., 1:45 p.m.


Carb Periodization, Stephanie MacNeill

Registered Dietician/Sports Dietician

Exercise training has employed the concept of periodization for decades, but the application of periodization to nutrition – specifically carbohydrates – is a comparatively new concept. Day-to-day or even meal-to-meal carbohydrate manipulation across your training cycle is one of the simplest nutritional strategies to promote endurance training adaptations

Keto, Kaitlyn Notwell, Accelerate Health & Wellness Centre

Certified Holistic Nutrition Practitioner

Certified Holistic Nutritionist Kate Notwell discusses the ketogenic diet and running performance. Learn how keto can relieve inflammation, improve mental clarity, and help you run your best race yet

Whole Food Plant Based, Brent Lockridge, Sustainable Nutrition

Certified Holistic Nutrition Practitioner

Sound nutrition for endurance athletes includes two main areas of focus that will allow the athlete to perform at their best. First, Energy Balance must be top of mind, this means the athlete must fuel their training with the appropriate amount of food to support the physiological adaptations that happen during training. Second, the athlete needs to further support total body health by consuming high quality macronutrients (carbs, protein and fat) from whole foods rich in vitamins and minerals


20-30 minute workshops featuring discussion/demos on footwear, corrective strategies, gait and more
