10. Chris "Hawaii" DeKoning
Play • 1 hr 16 min

In our 10th episode, we chat with Toronto’s running ambassador, Chris DeKoning about skateboarding, cats, and the hilarious (we think so!) story behind the nickname, “Hawaii.”

We also discuss Chris’ progression as a runner as well as his experience as the assistant director of the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon Broadcast. Chris also shares his thoughts on the Toronto running community, the future of racing, and his experience trying to keep up with kids on a track.
