Derrick Spafford

Discipline: Mountain RunningĀ® Team


Hometown: Yarker, Ontario. Canada

Running has been a huge part of my life since the early 1980’s. My love of running trails and being in the wilderness is what gets me outside each and every day, regardless of weather. La Sportiva footwear and clothing has enabled me to successfully and comfortably run and race in the most challenging trails, conditions and races that Canada has to offer.



1. Winning my first ever 100 mile race at Haliburton Forest 100
2. Finishing second at the Yukon Arctic Ultra 100, billed as the worlds toughest and coldest race (competitors must drag their safety/survival gear in a sled)
3. Completing and finishing second in the Rock and Ice Ultra 3 Day Stage Race in the Canadian Northwest Territories on snowshoes
4. Continuing my running streak of running every day since December 25, 1989
5. Building a business where I can share my passion for running with others through coaching and race directing, and seeing others meet and exceed their goals
