Running Group

Running group Shortly after Roy Lane opened in 2001, Nancy started the Roy Lane Sunday Morning Running Group, which was the 1st of its kind in Sioux Lookout. Every Sunday a small group of active and dedicated runners meet. These runners are Ron and Nora Laverty, Jackie Carlbom, Bonnie Switzer, Faye Johasson, Alyson Marlin, Sylvie MacDonald Lorraine Bolen and Nancy Roy. Others are more than welcome to join the Running Group!

The group of runners does their own thing during the week but meet at Roy Lane on Sundays mornings (8am winter months and 7am summer months), stretch, and go for an hour or two of exercise. Some run, some walk, some bring their dog, some bike. Roy Lane opens for this group exclusively after the run for a refreshing treat of fruit, yogurt, and coffee. The number of participants has varied, with 18 so far being the record.

Marathons and Triathlons

Members of the Roy Lane Running Group have regularly run half and full marathons in the area, along with 5K and 10K races and the annual Blueberrry Festival Triathlon.

Roy Lane also hosts the Roy Lane Annual 10K Road Race which takes place the 1st weekend of the Blueberry Festival in Sioux Lookout.
