Achilles Canada

Running Beyond Disability

Achilles Canada is a registered non-profit volunteer based organization that was formed in 1999. Achilles enables people with disabilities to experience the freedom of running with the help of volunteer running guides. The club meet each week to help members realize their running goals through the encouragement and support of our coaches and volunteers.

Running is as good for the mind as it is for the body. We pride ourselves on providing a welcoming environment that gives our members something to look forward to each and every week. We're more than just a running group. We're a support group of friends.

Once again for our fifth year running, Achilles Canada is entering a team in the Scotiabank Charity Challenge to showcase the power and determination of our Achilles athletes that break down barriers every day and achieve the impossible.

Your support will help Achilles Canada continue to offer support to individuals with different abilities, through organizing weekly training runs, support our athletes in purchasing proper running shoes and attire and through allowing Achilles athletes to compete with able-bodied athletes in running races across North America.

Please consider running and raising pledges for Team Achilles Canada for the Scotiabank Charity Challenge and please contact Brian McLean at for more information.
