Great Slave Lake, Northwest Territories — Brad Firth may have only taken up long distance running five years ago but, in that time, he has more than earned his nickname: Caribou Legs. His accomplishments to date include a six-month run across all 10 provinces in 2016. Born in Inuvik, Northwest Territories, Mr. Firth is a member of the Gwich’in Nation who developed his running legs in and around his current home of Vancouver.
