By day a teacher, by weekend a run & ski expert! Come to the store on Saturdays to meet Brad where he'll hook you up with gear. Brad has had a competitive athletic career in biathlon & triathlon.
Having really enjoyed running with the Run Club crew in the early years, now as a NCCP AC Performance Coach he hopes he can offer some of the education & inspiration that he found there.
Simon likes the road, XC, & doesn't mind an occasional trail race. Of course XC skiing in the winter months is always fun!
Don has been running forever...well, a long time. He completed his first half marathon at age 16 in Montreal in 1:31.
At school he competed in xc & track, a lifelong passion developed. Don's first marathon happened in Edmonton with no formal training. He then signed up for a 4 month marathon clinic that evolved into a lifetime of marathons...43 and counting, with a 3:17 PR. Don has also completed 36 ultramarathons including several 100 milers. And 2 Ironman's.
Don's all time favorite moment in running was pacing his wife Louise to a Boston Qualifier.

Paul Moore, the taller of the Moore brothers, has been a Fast Trax team member sine 14 years of age. That was when Harvey, one of the original owners called to congratulate him on qualifying for the Alberta Winter Games and to offer a sponsorship deal consisting of a free tuque.
Since then Paul has continued to train and race around Alberta and Canada. He's crossed the finish line first at Canadian Masters Nationals, the 55km Canadaian Birkie and has been the Alberta Cup Aggregate Champion.
Paul has also worked as a wax tech with the Australian cross-country ski team at world cups, 2 world championships, and the 2018 Winter Olympic Games. And more recently he has made fast skis with the Biathlon Canada World Cup team.
When he's not thinking about skiing, which is not a lot, Paul also works as the executive producer of news at CBC Edmonton.
