Club News

The 2024 Beer Mile

The Russell Run Club's foray into the beer mile was a success! If you missed all the action in Rockland at the Summer Spirits fesitval than you'll definitely want to check out the great pictures and read about the club's journey. After going from 'What the heck is a beer mile?' to event day success, we might consider doing this again!

Members' Achievements

Jay's triumphant return to the 10km

Congratulations to one of our new members, Jay Abramovitch, on his 1:00:05 finish at Run Ottawa's Canada Day Road Race 10km.

This race was a special one for Jay marking his first event of this distance in 3.5 years since being diagnosed with colon cancer, going through the required surgeries and chemotherapy and then managing the side effects that resulted. Even better, it looks like we'll have more opportunities to celebrate Jay as he has a 15km and a half marathon on his calendar for this year!

We like to celebrate our runners. Be sure to let us know about your achievements or those of your fellow members. You can post them on our Facebook page or email them to
