2021 Virtual Challenge

Sold Out

Coffee. Run. Repeat.

We’ve brewed up something new! Spend the month of May running as many 5Ks as you can. You could make it your goal to run your very first one, or could attempt one every day.

So, where’s the coffee? Your Siply app will have money loaded at the start of the race period for you to use as a post-run caffeine pick-me up at local Vancouver coffee shops. Each week we will create a 5K Strava route focused on one of these coffee shops. You can choose to follow our route, or do your own thing.

Whatever your goal is, we’re here to support with caffeine and air high fives along the way!
