Briana Scott has quickly burst into the Canadian running scene after starting her athletic career as a volleyball player, competing collegiately for McGill. A Vancouver native, Bri joined Mile2Marathon years after volleyball ended, to pick up running for the first time. Soon after, Bri found herself running half marathons, quickly improving, and falling in love with the sport. Bri has continued her running career training with the BC Endurance Project where she finished 2nd in the 2021 Canadian 10,000m Championships and 3rd in the 5km Road Championships. Bri and her husband live in Vancouver with their first kid on the way!

At the heart of it, I want people to enjoy running, to achieve their goals and to find community. Running should complement your lifestyle. I want to collaborate and find what works for each individual athlete.
Favourite race distance and why?
The mile. Growing up, my grandpa always marveled at how the sub-4-minute mile was an incredible human feat. He’d shared stories of the spectacle and his friendship with Roger Bannister, the first sub-4-minute miler. Weirdly enough, I’ve gone on to marry a sub-4-minute miler and grown to realize how crazy fast it is. The mile is the magic blend of speed and endurance.
Favourite post-workout treat or go-to place?
Freshly baked Shalane Flanagan superhero muffins, but there’s nothing quite like some salty chips on the drive home.
