Hello, my name is Derek Nakluski and I’m a competitive runner training out of the Kitchener-Waterloo area. I am sponsored by Saucony and also run for the Toronto Olympic Club. My goal as a distance runner is to represent Canada on the international stage. I love running and it takes me on all kinds of adventures and travels, but it also challenges me in so many ways. I can only hope that with hard work and consistent training that I can reach my goals. I know that with all my experiences I’ve had as a runner, has made me a better person with a positive outlook on the world around me.
