2021 Canadian Races: Run the Vancouver Marathon in the comfort of your Montréal neighborhood

With virtual races on tap for the 2021 summer road race season, there are now even more races to be excited about as the beautiful weather approaches!

From dog walking virtual challenges, like the Woof Walk challenge (we've got you hooked now! - scroll down for more info), to the in-person Gaspesia 100 Ultra in beautiful Percé, QC, you'll be sure to find exactly what you're looking for. 

We've broken down a number of upcoming races from province to province as well as some virtual Canada-wide races that are supporting great causes. There are even some in-person races planned for late 2021, which is encouraging news for those of us who are dying to compete alongside others (I know I'm one of those people).

Be sure to check them all out and let us know which race you plan on running!

Have suggestions? We'd love to hear from you on what other races you plan on running in!
