A great day out for the Veggie Runners – a team of around 14 runners successfully completed the 10k Sporting Life race in Toronto this past Sunday. The Veggie Challenge team was there cheering on the runners, and at the same time handing out a whole bunch of information to the crowds and race participants. A great time was had by all. The Veggie Runners made a great impression, proving, as their banners proclaimed that they were indeed ‘veggie & fit‘.

Leader needed, now found

Update: Marvin is back.  The next run is Sporting Life 10K on May 4. Check out the Facebook group: “Veggie Runners.”

Veggie & Fit’s is indebted to Marvin for getting the ball rolling for veggie fitness here in Toronto. Unfortunately, Marvin had to move out of town to Kitchener. With his departure, Veggie & Fit and the Veggie Runners Group was without a leader.

But YOU can change that. All it takes is for someone to assume the role of leader and become the contact person. We have helpers that can update this website with training schedules (such as a weekly run or cycle) and upcoming races. Further promotion could be through talking to friends, setting up a Facebook or Yahoo account, announcing the group in community papers as well as publications that reach runners or cyclists, posters in your community, etc.

We are also open to supporting people in other cities and towns who want to start a Veggie & Fit group.
