Then, strap on your running shoes and join Canada's ultra - marathoner and adventure athlete, Ray Zahab, for the 'Jog for the Bog' on September 26th 2010.

Mr. Zahab has competed in adventure racing challenges all over the world including the grueling 250km Gobi March and Libyan Challenge as well as expeditions to Baffin Island, Tunisia and the South Pole. In 2007, Zahab's love of running brought him to the Sahara Desert. After witnessing and experiencing the water crisis and malaria epidemic in Africa, he decided to dedicate his future to raising awareness and funding for causes that he supports and believes in. Zahab is a member of the board of Directors of the Ryan's Well Foundation He is the official Athletic Ambassador to the ONExONE organization and a representative of SpreadTheNet. In 2008, Ray founded impossible2Possible (i2P), an organization that aims to inspire and educate youth through adventure learning, and inclusion and participation in expeditions. Zahab will be participating in this year's Jog for the Bog, showing his support to conserve and protect Burns Bog, by running the 40km bog race route. All race participants will be able to run with Zahab for the last 10km of the race and a few lucky runners who are able to raise $2,000 in pledges will get the opportunity to run with Zahab for the entire race.
