Trying to describe Jerome Bruhm's contribution to running in Nova Scotia over the past quarter century in a short, concise manner is like trying to describe a marathon to a miler. In his illustrious career he was first and foremost a participant. While participating, Jerome did what most people never do: he decided to get involved. He went from participant to organizer, to coach, to administrator, to mentor. From timing events, to lining the course, to ensuring food and drink was available, he's one person who has done it all.
Jerome is the only Nova Scotian to be inducted in the Builder Category in both the Canadian Road Running Hall of Fame and the Road Running division of the Nova Scotia Sport Hall of Fame. There’s more! Jerome is the founder of Run Nova Scotia. Before he was involved, there was no Run Nova Scotia, just a group of runners who felt that the NS Track and Field Association (now Athletics NS) were not meeting their needs. NSTFS was spending all of its time and money on track and field, with little attention given to road runners. Jerome stuck his neck out and took his lumps during those early years, but convinced NSTFA that the road runners were worthy of attention. Jerome was the individual who recognized the problem and solved it by founding Run Nova Scotia.
