The Shakeout Podcast: Good Times in the Maritimes

In part two of a series on great Canadian running cities, we take you to a small town community on the East Coast with big hearts.

Michelle Kempton began running in her mid-30s after the birth of her twins to improve her health, and within only a few years became involved in her running community of rural Nova Scotia. She has been the race director of the Maritime Race Weekend since 2011 and each year has provided a two-day event that showcases the culture and community of the East Coast. 

Maritime Race Weekend

On this week’s episode of The Shakeout, we share Kempton’s personal running story and discover that the unique running community in the Maritimes is all about good times, pirates, and cold beer.
