Are there any Virtual Race Safety Tips ?

Virtual Race Safety Tips 

  • Complete your race solo. Do not run with anyone else, unless they live in your household 
  • If you are running with someone from your household, run single file, allowing others to pass you easily and safely 
  • Avoid high traffic pedestrian and vehicle areas. Run or walk close to home in your neighbourhood during a quieter time of day. 
  • Adhere to social distancing practices* while you are out running or walking. Can you safely pass someone? Can you run safely on the road? Make sure you always have a safe way to move around people to maintain 6 feet of distance. 
  • Complete your run on treadmill, if this is an option that is available to you and that you would prefer.  
  • Wear appropriate clothing. Be visible and dress for the weather.  
  • Bring water and/or nutrition if you’re planning a longer route. There are no water stations along the way in a virtual race.  
  • Carry a cell phone with you during your virtual race and tell someone the route you’re running in case of emergency.  

* follow the advice of your local public health authority, to help stop the spread of coronavirus. 

I want to donate my entire credit to a charity. How do I do that?

On behalf of all our charities, thank you!! These times are especially tough for them and we are so appreciative of your generosity. Although we are not able to donate your entire entry to a charity, our Virtual Race option allows you to donate to one of our official charities while supporting Canada Running Series. This option also allows for you to participate in a race while continuing to fundraise for your charity.
