2021 Virtual Race


The Banque Scotia 21K de Montréal is Canada Running Series’ flagship event in Québec. Known for its scenic routes within Parc Jean Drapeau and tremendous fundraising efforts in support of the Scotiabank Charity Challenge, this event attracts thousands of runners every year.

While this year’s event will be virtual, our team is working hard to deliver an experience that celebrates the things we love about running in Montréal – the beautiful scenery of Parc Jean-Drapeau, the feel-good energy of running for a cause and giving back through the Scotiabank Charity Challenge and, of course, the post-race Montréal style bagels!

Whether you’re looking for a serious challenge or a fun activity for the whole family, the Banque Scotia 21K de Montréal will keep you moving.
