Background

Having just graduated from Southern Utah University and joined the professional ranks, Mike is a new signing for 2018 and is Run-Fast’s first Canadian athlete.

Among the top of this year’s NCAA track & field graduates, Mike ran to the collegiate lead in the indoor 5000m this year, clocking 13:37.33 to win the event at the Husky Classic in February. His 13:34.28 PB in the 5000m ranked him 4th in Canada in 2017, and he’s represented Canada internationally in track and cross country on four separate occasions.

Mike now trains with some of his country’s top endurance runners in the Speed River Track Club in Guelph, Ontario, and is building towards the Canadian Cross Country Championships in late November, targeting a national team selection for the 2019 World Cross Country Championships in Denmark.
