The Runner's and Triathlete's Web is a complete running and triathlon resource portal.
The Runner's Web was founded as a hobby site in 1996 by Ken Parker. Ken is the founder and former President & CEO of Sirius Consulting Group Inc. which he sold in February of 2004. He is the founder and coach of the Ottawa Athletic Club Racing Team and was a founding coach of the Ottawa Lions Track Club. He is a former marathoner and co-founder and race director of Ottawa's National Capital Marathon and a number of other road races including the 1981 Avon International Marathon. Ken was named Volunteer of the Year at the ACT Sports Awards in 2002 and received the Queen's Golden Jubilee Medal for community service in 2003.
RunnersWeb.com Inc. is now a small business venture which sponsors the OAC Racing Team, a women's road racing and triathlon club, and the OAC Gatineau Triathlon and OAC Corporate Relay, and the See You In Athens fund which supports Canada's Olympians.
The Runner's Web aims to provide a portal into the world of running - including athletics (track and field) and road running, triathlon and adventure racing.
In addition to providing access to the resources desired by participants of all age levels and abilities, the site provides timely news and features on a global scale on a 7 day per week basis with frequent, multi-times-per-day updates.
Our audience is the global community of runners, triathletes and multisport athletes.
