Kylie & Paul McKendrick
OwnersBorn and raised in Calgary, the mountains were Kylie and Paul’s backyard since they were kids. Kylie’s ski racing background had her in the mountains every weekend and fell in love with running during the summer months of training. Paul grew a passion for touring the mountains as a teenager and has since been exploring by foot, skis or his bike. After 15 years of working the Calgary corporate world, they moved out to Canmore with their family to raise their 3 children in the mountains. Combining their business backgrounds with their passion of running and the trails, they opened Strides Canmore in March, 2018.
