Lucia Salmaso Runs in support of Northern Cancer Foundation and in memory of Lise

Lucia's first Sudbury Rocks was in 2017 in the 5k event when she was 9yrs old. She has participated every year since (this will be her 5th year!). She has done the 5km & 10km events over the years. Lucia also volunteered with RBC and has worked on race kit and bib preparation and also helped out at the race kit pick up events over the years. Lucia loves running and has learned a lot about the fundraising over the years for Juvenile Diabetes and now the Northern Cancer Foundation.

Her fundraising goal this year is $500 and she’s excited to lace up her shoes this May in support of the @Northern Cancer Foundation in memory of Lise Perdue. Her fondest memories of Lise are from volunteering with her and seeing her at race kit pick up and at the finish line

The 2021 Barkley Marathons Had No Finishers
Jared Campbell and Luke Nelson ran three loops for a Fun Run, but no one completed all five loops.

MAR 20, 2021

- For the third time in a row, there were no finishers at the Barkley Marathons.
- Sixteen runners completed the first loop before the time cutoff, and just two runners, Jared Campbell and Luke Nelson, set off to attempt a third loop (which they didn’t finish in time).
- Only 15 runners have ever finished the race since it began in 1986. The most recent was John Kelly in 2017.

The course at the Barkley Marathons has won again.

In the first race in almost two years (the 2020 race was canceled because of the pandemic) there were no finishers at the ultra endurance event in Frozen Head State Park in Wartburg, Tennessee. Two participants—three-time Barkley finisher Jared Campbell and Tor des Geants finisher Luke Nelson—completed three loops of the Barkley course in 40 hours for a Fun Run, but no one started a fourth loop.

This year’s Barkley Marathons looked slightly different than previous editions. There were few international competitors due to pandemic-related travel restrictions, and because of this, a smaller field of runners (usually 40 runners line up), almost entirely Americans, took on the beast. Additionally, runners were required to get COVID-19 tests ahead of arrival, among other safety protocols.

A strong contingent of Barkley veterans lined up at the start, including Big’s Backyard champion Maggie Guterl, two-time Barkley Fall Classic winner Liz Canty, the only three-time Barkley finisher Jared Campbell, and multi-time Barkley attempter Jamil Coury. There was also a lot of excitement around Barkley virgins (first-timers) Courtney Dauwalter, Western States and Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc champion; and Luke Nelson, Tor des Geants finisher. Guterl, Canty, and Dauwalter were attempting to become the first woman to finish the Barkley.

The race started midweek, in order to deter spectators. Founder Gary “Lazarus Lake” Cantrell blew the conch at 2:03 a.m. ET on Thursday, March 18, and runners set off on the first loop an hour later, when Cantrell lit his cigarette. Runners dealt with rainy and foggy conditions throughout the entire event.

April 11, 2021 | Free Entry

Forty-one years ago this April, Terry Fox started his iconic cross-country run, the Marathon of Hope. On April 11th, join us to celebrate Terry, celebrate the 41st anniversary of Terry's run and celebrate all that has been accomplished with cancer research since Terry ran. Together, we can fundraise to achieve Terry's dream of a world without cancer.

Sign up for the Marathon of Hope Celebration Run today and pledge to run or walk from 1K to 10K or more. Terry was unable to complete his cross-country run but we can keep Terry's dream alive by compiling all of our pledged kilometres to see how many times we can cross the country, together!

Terry's wish was that we all come together as a nation to end cancer. Your participation in this very special event will help us do just that.

Join the Celebration

Please also follow physical distancing measures and guidelines set out by the health agencies and government in your local area.

Even if I don't finish, we need others to continue. It's got to keep going without me.
