Bio

My name is Remi Leroux and I am a 20 year old long distance runner born and raised in Montreal, Quebec. I was a competitive tennis player until my seventeenth birthday where I decided to pursue my passion for tennis in coaching. In the summer of 2016, I decided to run a local 5k race with my family just for fun. Once the starting gun went off, the competitive side of me came out and I raced as hard as I could, finishing 3rd overall. I really enjoyed my first racing experience and immediately decided to challenge myself to run my first marathon, the Montreal marathon which took place later that summer. From that point on, I was completely addicted to the feeling of freedom and accomplishment running procured me. I have always enjoyed the physical and mental challenges in longer distances, which is why I currently specialize in marathons, and am looking forward to race ultras in the future.
