Best known as the lead vocalist for Our Lady Peace, it’s fair to say there are probably a few things you didn’t know about rocking Raine Maida, including the fact that he’ll be playing, for free, at the finish line at a Canadian half marathon in the fall.
7. His real name is Mike. He changed it to Raine because there was already a Mike in the band.
6. Our Lady Peace released not one, but two greatest hits collections: A Decade, and The Very Best of Our Lady Peace (Superman’s Dead live, anyone?).
5. He’s married to Chantal Kreviazuk and both of them were given the Order of Canada in 2004 for their humanitarian work and yes—she’s a runner. Here’s her latest interview with iRun. (“I love how inspiring running is,” she says. “I love how you feel in the end.”)
4. They met at a Pearl Jam concert in 1996.
3. His hero is Bruce Lee.
2. He was once a part owner of a mixed martial arts gym in Toronto and has always enjoyed working out, and running. The gym is closed but he still works out, and runs, all over the world.
1. He’s performing at the Rock ‘n’ Roll Oasis Montreal Marathon on September 25 with Our Lady Peace in a free concert for 35,000 participants and their family and friends!
See you there!
