The 21K de Montréal is Canada Running Series’ flagship event in Québec. This iconic race for Montréal’s vibrant running community is welcoming participants back to the scenic routes of Parc Jean-Drapeau in April 2022!

As we return to in-person racing, we remain committed to our mission of “building community through running.” Whether you are looking for a family-friendly activity, a serious race, or want to test your endurance with the Hat Trick challenge, participants of all levels are invited to experience the stunning scenery and tremendous energy of the 21K de Montréal. With all distances available virtually as well, participants can run their virtual race wherever they choose!
