2021 Virtual Challenge


Get Montréal moving!

The STM moves millions of people around Montréal every year.

The Défi STM Virtual Challenge is an opportunity for everyone, whether you use public transit or not, to get out and move 66 km, the total distance of the Montréal metro, throughout the month of June. Runners, walkers, elites and beginners alike will be able to track their progress online and will receive STM swag, and other exciting perks along the way!

The Défi STM Virtual Challenge also includes the opportunity to give back to one of STM’s four charity partners: Centraide du Grand Montréal, HealthPartners-Québec, the Red Cross and the Réchaud-Bus.
