About Us

Founded in 2018 to meet the need for group training sessions in the in Markham, Ontario, Alphas Running is client-centered, and performance-focused running club. We provide expertise, motivational support and encouragement to transform you from a novice or hesitant runner into a dynamic runner.

We offer coaching for individuals who want to improve various aspects of their running:

  • Functional: technique, returning from injury

  • Run fitness: Improving fitness, speed, agility

  • Outcome based: Training towards a specific event.


Alphas coaching philosophy is based on Hansons Marathon Method, the revolutionary training program from one of the best running teams in the world, the Hansons-Brooks Distance Project; the similar methods used to turn their runners into race winners, national champions, and Olympians.

The Alphas coaching focuses on five components:

  • Distance (Mileage)

  • Intensity

  • Balance

  • Consistency

  • Active Recovery

Head Coach - Toussaint

As the founder and head coach of Alphas Running, I focus on helping other runners realize and achieve their true potential.


There is nothing I love more than helping my athletes achieve their running goals, whether that goal is to run their first race, safely return to running postpartum, run a half marathon / marathon PR or qualify for the Boston Marathon.

Over the past 2 years I have worked with almost 100 runners and have helped many of them to run personal best times at distances from the 5 km to the marathon.

Clients I have trained have improved their times by between 5 minutes to 20 minutes.

If you are looking for someone to guide you on your running journey and help you reach your goals, I’d love to be that person!

Let’s Make History!
