Michelle Leduc

Coach Michelle started running 20 years ago with a short 20 minute run to see what the "big deal" was.  After that short run in the fall, she was hooked.  She currently runs ultra-marathons, competing in races from 50 km to 100 miles.   Michelle joined RUN CLUB as our first junior group leader in 2014, and much like her own running career, after that first training session, she was hooked.  Michelle continues to share her passion, knowledge and enthusiasm of running with our local runners.  When not leading our junior runners, Michelle can be found trail running  and spending most weekends training in Gatineau Park.   She loves to run for the challenge and to be outside in nature.
