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

10:00 a.m., 11:30 a.m., 1 p.m.

Erin Thompson, Physical Educator for the Royal Military College of Canada

During these sessions, Erin will discuss some easy and exciting new ways to prevent injury and pain for both the average and the avid runner. She will take you through some effective warm up and recovery strategies as well as introduce you to some of the most effective ways to care for and strengthen the body in order to keep it running (pun intended) in peak condition for the long-term!
