Welcome To Defiance Running Club

Meeting at the side entrance of WDSS starting January 19



Our motto is “Run for your life. It depends on it.” That, in a nutshell, sums up what were are about, and that is running, lots and lots of running, walking, cycling, swimming and more. Our executive consists of a group of eleven, like-minded individuals from a variety of different backgrounds with one common goal, and that goal is better health. Our members are a diverse bunch, ranging from just-off-the-couch novices to Tough Mudders and Tri-athletes, all sharing a love for running/walking.

Although our club is located in Wallaceburg, we encourage people from the surrounding area to join us for our social run/walks and to get involved in our Defiance Challenge.

Our club is passionate about what we do, and one of our main focuses is our youth program, which enables youth to become active at a level that best suits them.

Young or old, fit, or unfit, it doesn’t matter to our club; we welcome everyone. Our challenges do not put you up against others; our challenges put you up against you. It all begins with a single step… in the right direction.

The health benefits of walking and running are numerous and include:

  • Heart health
  • Increase in strength
  • Decrease in breathing issues such as asthma
  • Reduction in blood pressure
  • Improvement in mental health
  • An increase in bone density
  • Reduction of the effects of diabetes
  • Aids in reducing stress

And most importantly, it helps fight cancer



Scheduled Runs will take place every Tuesday and Thursday at 5:00, and every Sunday at 2:00. We also try to host a social run once a month.

Members have access to our facebook page to post any runs, ask questions, post photos and keep up to date with the club.
