Jonathan-CouleeCactus_0753Trail Running Canada was started by Jonathan Schmidt in 2008. After surviving the 2007 TransRockies Run, Jonathan decided there was a need for more resources on trail running in Canada. After all, Canada has some of the best places in the world to go trail running. Since his immersion into trail running at TransRockies, Jonathan has finished numerous trail races in Alberta and British Columbia, including Powderface42, Lost Soul Ultra 50k, Heiko’s Half and Coulee Cactus. Jonathan is a two-time runner up at the Lost Soul 50k, three-time winner of Coulee Cactus and top 5 finisher at Powderface42. You can contact Jonathan at jon@trailrunner.ca.
