I have known Christine for over 10 years and during that time she has helped me on both a personal and professional level. She coached me through her Richmond Run Club which allowed me to complete my first marathon at the age of 34. On a professional level, she has interviewed me numerous times on various health topics through her show, Run With It. This show is very professional and is one of the most informative shows on the topic of health and fitness!

“As a long distance runner, I have really enjoyed Christine Blanchette’s show, Run With It. BC Athletics, as the governing Provincial Sport Organization for Track & Field, Race Walk, Road and Cross Country Running, encourages and promotes participation in the healthy activity of running for all ages and Run With It helps to get this message out to our communities in B.C.”

Greg White, Chair, BC Athletics.



Christine started running in 1999 and five months later finished the Vancouver Marathon in a qualifying time for Boston. A year later Christine completed a 50 kilometre ultra marathon in Victoria, B.C., gaining more confidence with a second place finish while her passion for the sport grew.

Christine is an avid conpetitive runner who started the Run Club at the City of Richmond.  From there she went on to teach faculty and students at the UBC Athletics
Department with a Half Marathon Clinic – eights years and counting.
This lead to Christine hosting BC’s only Running, Fitness and Health Show on Shaw TV “Run With It”.

Christine is a television running celebrity, 70,000 views per month and growing. Her interview subjects range from amateur and professional athletes, coaches and managers, to music celebrities and actors, the theme being fitness and health. Run With It calls on Canadians to engage in physical fitness and promotes physical literacy, targeting all ages.

Christine is also a nationally published health and fitness writer. She writes weekly columns for both the Richmond Review in B.C. and The Sherbrooke Record, Quebec’s second largest English language newspaper. In addition, Christine does radio commentaries on running tips with CJMQ 88.9 fm in Quebec.

She has been interviewed by mainstream media, while my stories have been printed nationally. Christine has written stories for The Seattle Times, The Vancouver Sun, Canadian Running Magazine, Huffington Post, Women’s National Post, Optimyz Magazie, iRun Magazine and Get Out There Magazine.
