Epi. 149-Who Are The Backroads Bandits?

This week we chat with the National Cross Country Men's title holders, London's Backroads Bandits.


Epi. 148-Half Miles, Metric Miles And Marathons With Becky Pieterson

For fans of the sport, the name Becky Pieterson has probably been on your radar for a while. Starting out as Fanshawe Falcon in the CCAA, the team was at the height of their dominance, and she was a huge reason for that, finishing top 5 at 2 CCAA cross country championships. From there she went to the Mustangs where she was a consistent cross country team member, and turned out some great performances during the indoor season as well. Since graduating you can find Becky running twilights...


Epi. 147- The Twilight Journeyman, Kyle Grieve

You may know Kyle Grieve as being a member of that killer Gueloh Gryphon cross country team a couple years back...a team by my estimation that may be the greatest ever to ever run in the Canadian league, dominating podiums for years. Hendrix, Proudfoot, Nixon, Woodfine, Sikubwabu, anyways, if you followed that, then you probably also noticed that for a little while after graduation, Kyles results disappeared, he wasn’t running any races. From that point, to clawing his way back into fitness,...


Epi.146-The Strange Case Of Paddy Birch

Paddy Birch is an unusual case when it comes to distance running.Not too many 4 hour plus debut marathoners go on to later run 2:25s...even fewer run that within the first year they first cross the 100km a week threshold. Paddy, with roots in football, or soccer, if you will, has had quite a bit of success in quite a short amount of time, with the latest mark coming at last weeks Rock and Roll Philly Half, where the Irish born, and Toronto residing runner laid down a new PB of 68:37 on a...


Epi. 145-The Steeple Time Smasher, Marie Bernard-Galea

This past week, the Candian contingent of athletes heading to Doha for the World Championships was announced, and among those selected, there were quite a few familiar names. One of those athletes, Maria Bernard Galea, will be representing Canada for a second time at a World Track and Field Championships, and has an Olympic appearance to her name at just age 26. Maria is a steepler, by far one of the deepest events right now in Canada, and has had a stand out year so far, putting down a big...

Epi. 144-Breaking Barriers In The Metric Mile With Corey Bellemore

The story of Corey Bellemore is one unlike any other. First showing his hand as a runner to watch at the University level, running as a Windsor Lancer, it was his success as a beer miler that truly vaulted him to fame, essentially debuting as the world record holder. Throughout that time, Corey, with the help of a few sharp individuals, was able to turn that notoriety into a way to advance his race opportunities, sans alcohol, including spots at a Diamond League meet and the Millrose games....

Often times on the Terminal Mile, we shine a spotlight on athletes in their young 20s to mid 30s, living their physiologically best years chasing the top of the athletic world, but every now and again, there are other areas of our sport that really catch our eyes, and our imaginations.

Epi 142-Persistence, A Pan Am Gold And A Literary Preview With Natasha Wodak And Lewis Kent

One of the great things about distance running is that its proof that persistance pays off.
