Bio: Jean-Paul Bédard is an author, advocate, and an elite endurance athlete. Jean-Paul was recently named the 2015 “Canadian Runner of the Year”. As a Brooks sponsored athlete and veteran of over 120 marathons, Jean-Paul has used his high profile to become one of the leading international advocates for survivors of sexual violence. Jean-Paul is a featured contributor to Huffington Post, a columnist with iRun Magazine, and his book Running Into Yourself will be released in the spring of 2016.

Jean-Paul has become a leader within the running community highlighting the power of overcoming adversity, and along the way, reminding us of the ability of running to bring out the best in each of us. 2016 is shaping up to be a HUGE year of adventure racing for Jean-Paul, as he will be running a Triple Chilly Half Marathon (63.3km) in March, The Boston Marathon in April, a Double-Double Ottawa Marathon (168.8km) in May, and then a Triple-Double Toronto Waterfront Marathon (253.2km) in October.

Jean-Paul is passionate about engaging with the running community, and in his new advice column, “Ask JP” for iRun Magazine, Jean-Paul will be answering your questions about running, training, and life in general. You can contact Jean-Paul at and follow him on Twitter and Instagram: @runjprun
