Hello Everyone and Welcome!

I’m Mike Suminski. I live in the beautiful city of Victoria in British Columbia, Canada.

  • I have completed 37 marathons, 16 ultra-marathons including two ‘Leadville Trail 100’ finishes, and numerous 10 km and 1/2 marathons since 1990.
  • ‘School of Experience’ – a life-long learner.
  • I have been a running coach since 2005.
  • My successes include:
  •  – Doris Dubicki’s 50 mile Canadian Championship win, May 3, 2005
  •  – Dr. Allan Cook – marathon finishing times of 3 hrs 32 mins and 3 hrs 23 mins (previous 4 marathons were 4 hours +)
  •  – Greg Tonge, age 55 – completed his first 6 marathons in 9 months in 2006 and qualified for the Boston marathon. Update: Greg finished his 32rd marathon May 01, 2011 at the Vancouver marathon.
  • Everyone gets equal attention: I will coach runners for any distance from 10 km to an ultra-marathon.
  • I stress quality mileage running, and hill workouts.
