Soul Runners

From beginners crossing their first finish line, to seasoned runners looking to crush new goals,

our team oriented programs are designed to help promote confidence both on the road and

off the road.


Running is typically thought of as a sport that is meant to be played alone however,

there is something powerful about running in a pack coupled with safety in numbers. It is our
mission to link social connection with personal success



When you run with us, spreading good community vibes will come naturally to you
as we teach you the skills to positively influence your physical and mental health.
We want you to look good, look feel great, and be better.



No matter what your level of fitness, Soul Runners will be right by your side as we help you realize your potential.

In our programs, no runner runs alone, and no runner is left behind.

Mission I

 Purpose I 

We exist to create an atmosphere of acceptance through our group fitness programs.

We promote health and fitness principles to all types of people as our trainers and students work together inspiring one another to be stronger, healthier and better than yesterday.

In our programs, every single Soul Runner has a purpose, and every single Soul Runner has a goal. Since we understand that not every person is the same, we cater our training programs to individual abilities, needs and skills.

When you join our one on one classes or group training sessions, you will become part of a powerful community that will inspire you to look good, feel great, and be better, all while staying safe.

So get up, get outside, and come experience what it feels like to run with a little bit of soul!

 Vision I 

Girl hugging children after running race

My name is Kristen and I am the creator of Soul Runners.


My entire mind set changed the moment I set foot on pavement.

I became kinder, quicker, smarter, and more positive. I started making friends easier. I finally found the courage to let go of what I couldn’t change, and I no longer felt like I lived in a world that worked against me.

Running has given me the self confidence I once lacked, and has lead me to people and connections I never imagined. Because of this, it is my life goal to pay it forward.

In 2018 (well into my adulthood), I studied the Business program at Fanshawe College. This is where created the concept behind Soul Runners; a non-judgmental, safe place to go for people who want to hit the trails and burn some calories while building some meaningful, lasting relationships.

During this time I completed my Group Fitness certification with the American Council on Exercise. Upon graduation from Fanshawe, I became specialized in Sports & Fitness Nutrition also through American Council on Exercise. I am a fitness instructor for The City of London and have taught for several independent fitness companies along the way. Fitness is my passion and I couldn't be happier to share it with you.

Soul Runners training plans are written in collaboration with local athletes and Fanshawe affiliates. These programs are the foundation of our virtual and group fitness sessions. They become customized to you and your needs, and then adjusted according to your progress. Our programs are catered to you because we want to see you succeed. And with my passion, I promise that you will.

Peace and love always,
Kristen Chalmers - Owner / Head Coach

We want to spread the power of unity to Canadian communities everywhere, while exploring the beauty those communities have to offer.
