What is the Virtual Race?
The Banque Scotia 21K de Montréal Virtual Race will take place from Monday May 25th to Monday August 31st, so you have the flexibility of choosing a date and time that works for you.
What you get:
- Virtual bib
- Saucony shirt
- Finishers medal
- Virtual finishers badge
Where: Anywhere! A virtual race is completed at a time and place of your choosing. Read our ‘Virtual Race Safety Tips’ in the Virtual Race FAQs.
How: You can run or walk the 21K, 10K or 5K and you can do the full distance at once or break it into smaller increments over several days. Once complete, you will visit Sportstats to upload your race time. Please note if you do smaller increments, you will need to upload your cumulative time manually.
Your finisher’s medal and shirt will then be delivered to you! Kids Run participants can also enjoy their own virtual race, complete with medal and shirt, but we do not require them to upload their time to Sportstats.
Uploading your Results
Once you’ve completed your race between May 25th and August 31st, follow these steps to upload your results to Sportstats. You will require a Sportstats account, and will receive an e-mail from firstname.lastname@example.org with instructions on how to claim your account. Be sure to check your junk and spam folders in case your e-mail ends up there. Please note, it takes 48 hours from the time you registered to be able to upload your results:
- Go to Sportstats
- Select ‘View Virtual Event’ under the Banque Scotia 21K de Montreal
- Select “Submit Results’
- Submit your results via a GPX file from your wearable device, or you can enter them manually
- More detail on GPX files uploads available in the Virtual Race FAQs.
- You can upload your race result more than once if you improve your time, but please be mindful that this may not be the time to run a PB. Run well within your ability to keep yourself and those around you safe.
Once your results are uploaded to Sportstats, you will have the chance to win some awesome prizes from our race partners! Prizing will be based on participation, not performance, so everyone has an equal chance of winning.
Be proud of your accomplishment and share it with your friends and family online! Post your finishers badge using our official race hashtags #Scotia21kMTL and #RunCRSvirtual to connect with our virtual race community.
All registrants will receive a souvenir shirt courtesy of Saucony. The Stopwatch shirt series provides straightforward sweat-wicking performance. It gives you the moisture-management you need to stay comfortable at any speed. The Stopwatch series keeps you dry, chafe free and is made with recycled content, so you can always feel good while you run!
