41. Canada Race Organizers on Porta-Potties, Virtual Races, and The Future of Racing

As the World starts to return to normal ways of living, we’re also starting to see the return of live racing in cities like Boston, New York, and elsewhere. So what does this mean for Canada? We invited two of the top race organizers in Canada to share their thoughts on everything from porta-potties to motivating runners in a virtual race format. We’ll also discuss what’s required to pivot from virtual racing to in-person racing; it’s harder than we thought! As the Event Director for Canada Running Series, Charlotte Brooks is responsible for organizing and managing events in Montreal, Edmonton and Toronto. Perhaps the most well known race is the IAAF Gold Label Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon. Cory Freedman is the CEO/Founder of MAX VO2 Event Management Inc. and the Toronto Women’s Run Series. Cory is the Race Director for many races in Toronto, including the Sporting Life 10k. We can’t wait to see our listeners and friends in Canada and the rest of the World in person at the start line of our favourite races and when that day comes, let’s remember all the hard work race organizers and volunteers are doing to make your race day special!
