    EP 125: Pride Month Running Panel - AO Celebrates Pride Month

    We run with Pride at Athletics Ontario, especially during June's Pride Month in support of LGBTQ+ athletes. To continue our celebration and learning, we welcome back recent guests Rach McBride and Dee Pearson, along with Cory Freedman of the TO Women's Run Series, to speak about how road and trail running can be more inclusive to gender-diverse and queer athletes. This is a can't miss conversation with some important topics (and serious laughs!!).

    EP 124: Rach McBride, Triathlete - AO Celebrates Pride Month

    EP 124: Rach McBride, Triathlete - AO Celebrates Pride Month

    We continue our celebration of Pride Month with Rach McBride (and guest co-host Cory Freedman!), who is a five-time Ironman 70.3 winner and the first open non-binary professional triathlete. They are crushing it in the worlds of triathlon and gravel racing, but it has not been easy as a non-binary athlete. The world of athletics encounters similar barriers to sport described in this conversation - it is great and powerful learning for anyone trying to lace up their running shoes.
