Im excited to be playing a couple of sets in conjunction with Shawn Brady at the Hideout! We are playing for a fundraiser looking to raise money for three amazing charities and to support the teams running from Toronto to Montreal… here is more info from the organizer:
On Novmber 7th I am super excited to say we are doing this again! We are RUNNING unsupported from Toronto to Montreal. We will depart from Nathan Phillips Square at 9pm and 50+ hours later we will arrive on top of Montreal - Mount Royal overlooking the city. And this year we have added teams - and we still have room for another....
This 660km endeavour will be tackeled for the challenge, accomplishment, and sense of running community but also to benefit 3 very special charities ( more on those below)
Supporting this Ultra Relay - we are again hosting a community fundraiser at The Hideout for 3 local charities which mean a great deal to us. On WEDNESDAY October 17th from 7:30pm to 12:00am please join us to fundraise for our charities and celebrate our commitment to this incredible opportunity. We will be finishing the toughest part of the training program and as it gets darker and harder. It will be a wonderful time to bring the running communities together. We will appreciate the BOOST!!
Come for live music by Shawn Brady and Don Campbell and enjoy a silent auction (supporting the teams), along with food and beer included with your ticket. Also, it is the anniversary of Gord Downie's passing, and he died of the same exact disease as Colin Buchanan, my friend and the inspiration for this ultra relay.

This November, our small but determined crew will come together for an adventure never documented and quite possibly never conquered before. On the night of Tuesday November 7, we will embark on a self-supported run from Toronto to Montreal and plan to arrive early morning on Friday November 10 at the lookout atop Mount Royal. We are doing this for the challenge and the fun of course! We also want to support 3 charities that mean a great deal to us: Kensington Health, Start2Finish and Good Foot Delivery (more info on these charities below).
Darren Weldrick, Nyki Rogers, Ryan Rogers, Don Campbell, Sarah Vandonk, Becky Gerretsen, Gord Davison, Carolyn Hicks, Maria Pesce and Lyndsay Nugent.
With intense training and an equal amount of determination these brave runners will prove that anyone can achieve goals they previously thought to be unattainable.
On WEDNESDAY October 11, from 7-11pm at The Hideout Toronto, please join us to fundraise for our charities and celebrate our commitment to this 660km endeavor. We will be in the midst of the toughest part of training, a peak week, as it gets darker with still a month to go. It will be an exciting and challenging time and we look forward to this opportunity to bring running communities together. We would love your company and support when team spirits will need a boost!
Come for live music from Shawn Brady (a 2:27 marathoner himself), Don Campbell (a #runtomtl team member) and Jeff Eager as well as a silent auction, beer, food and the usual Hideout excitement.
Tickets are $25.00 and can be purchased directly from any of us, online at the link below or at the door October 11.
