Pierre-Alexandre Cardinal

 

 

What was your greatest personal sports achievement of the past year?

Organizing and running the Tour de la Gaspésie 1000 km relay with a group of my friends was quite epic. There is something to living in an RV for ten days with friends, sharing and connecting, running through scenic landscapes, eating plain rice and energy bars, getting down in the mud, and in our soul, together. To me, achievements are meant to be shared. And quite honestly, consistently hitting the roads or trails with my buddies was the best for me.

 

What inspired or challenged you this year when taking on new running, fitness, sports goals?

Getting the time and opportunity to reflect on how running could be a catalyst for more than just body-mechanical movements or a mere runners' high. It can be a catalyst for deep change, and that inspires me to keep on running. 

 

What's your favorite On product?

In terms of shoes, the Cloudventure Peak is my go-to – lightweight, low drop, perfect fit and amazing look! Gear-wise, I love my Weather Jacket(s). It's literally always with me, whenever I'm on the move, in my running pack, on my commute runs: rain or shine, every season, comfort.

What was the biggest value/benefit from being an ambassador for the On Run Crew?

It's provided that extra bit of motivation and the great gear helps me look and perform at my best. But more than that, I have met many great runners this year. Despite not being able to meet in person, we have met virtually, and I have taken a lot of inspiration from their stories. Hopefully, this year we can run together in person.

 

What inspired or challenged you this year when taking on new running, fitness, sports goals?

Meeting and being part of the On Run Crew has been an endless source of inspiration, even if we can’t meet in person. The Global Support Run across Germany, and the Virtual SquadRace provided real competition and real camaraderie. 

 

What's your favorite On product?

The running tops are really great, super light and well cut. Perfect for what I need. In terms of running shoes, I'm a big fan of the Cloudflow. It's lightweight, fully cushioned, and adapts perfectly to my running style.

How did you adapt in the past year?

I replaced canceled competitions with virtual runs and competitions, such as the virtual On SquadRace, which provided an excellent challenge for all the On trail maniacs. The races were virtual, but the competition was very real!

 

What inspired or challenged you this year when taking on new running, fitness or sports goals?

I generally love to challenge myself and always set personal goals. Many things inspired me throughout the year, including projects such as "Taming Giants" by Katie[Schide]and Germain[Grangier], an incredibly inspiring story full of adventure.

 

What was the biggest value/benefit from being an ambassador for the On Run Crew?

Above and beyond all else, the experience is invaluable as it has provided me with a connection to like-minded individuals. Together, the On Run Crew has a collective team spirit that motivates us to achieve extraordinary goals together. 

 

 

What was your greatest personal sports achievement of the past year?

Before the March lockdown, I participated in the 154 km TNBT in Guadeloupe, an extremely rare race through the jungle, mud and sandy beaches that lasted 32 hours. I finished first, and it will always be one of the fondest moments of my career.

 

What was the biggest value/benefit from being an ambassador for the On Run Crew?

During this rollercoaster year, being part of the On Run Crew was one of the main reasons I kept my head out of the water as a runner and athlete. Having this close relationship with the rest of the crew was incredibly motivating and inspired me always to push forward and keep running.

 

Magdalena

 

 

What was the biggest value/benefit from being an ambassador for the On Run Crew?

The On Run Crew team spirit was invaluable in 2020. It allowed us to thrive despite us not being able to meet in person. The crew showed that it's possible to run together even when different countries and time zones separate us.

 

What's your favorite On product?

For me, 2020 was the year of the Cloudrock. In September, I moved to Munich and went nearly every weekend for a hike in the mountains, and this shoe always kept me safe and dry without fail.

 

Cedric Bonel

 

 

What was the biggest value/benefit from being an ambassador for the On Run Crew?

To finally represent a brand I have been devoted to for years. Plus, it has allowed me to meet athletes from my area that share the same values and a passion for running and to have the chance to develop projects together. The Québec On Run Crew is powerful and motivating! 

 

What are you most looking forward to from On?

That the designers keep on bringing edgy gear that every time make me realize how solid On is. And that On continues to engage on the path of sustainable and responsible development.
