Vi Endurance - MatthewI am originally from Winnipeg, MB and spent 14 years as a pilot in the Royal Canadian Air Force. I moved with my family to Nanaimo BC in 2012. While in Winnipeg I worked with a friend of mine on his trail races and really got a taste for race directing.

I have been runner since 1998 and moved into the ultrarunning world in 2010. So I really wanted to put on an Ultramarathon (any run over 42.2km). Moving here to Nanaimo gave me that opportunity.

In 2012 I was injured and was unable to run for about 6 months. After about 2 weeks my wife kindly told me to get out of the house and get some exercise. So I hit the pool. I tried to do water running but…. no. So I started swimming and since I do most things to excess I started swimming farther and I discovered marathon swimming (any swim over 10km).

My Goals with VI Endurance are simple; put on small high quality events. Yes, there will be a limited number of participants at each race so you can expect lots of personal service and great friendly crowd.

I hope you come to these races and push yourself to the next level of excellence. If at any point you think I am not holding up my end, please let me know and I will do what I can to make it right.
