RunnersWeb.com Inc. is now a small business venture which founded the RunnersWeb5K.com Race for Women, now renamed Emilie's Run - The Emilie Mondor Memorial 5K Race for Women (EmiliesRun.com).
In 2005 the site sponsored the OAC Racing Team, a women's road racing and triathlon club, and the OAC Gatineau Triathlon and OAC Corporate Relay, the Dave Scott Triathlon Clinic, the Canadian Iron Distance Triathlon and the See You In Athens fund which supports Canada's Olympians.
The Runner's Web aims to provide a portal into the world of running - including athletics (track and field) and road running, triathlon and adventure racing.
In addition to providing access to the resources desired by participants of all age levels and abilities, the site provides timely news and features on a global scale on a 7 day per week basis with frequent, multi-times-per-day updates.
Our audience is the global community of runners, triathletes and multisport athletes.
As of May 2023, the site is no longer accepting advertising.
