Virtual 8k/5k Information

Virtual Race Information

As we continue to adhere to COVID-19 restrictions and guidelines mandated by the province of Ontario and City of Toronto Public Health, we continue to be apart yet together as we find new ways for us to come together.  The 2021 Toronto Women’s virtual 8k/5k enables us to be united even when we can’t all be at the start line together.  

Our virtual race gives you the flexibility to complete your race, your way, on your schedule. You can run on a road, a trail, path, a treadmill or wherever you want. 

You will receive an exclusive Toronto Women’s 8k/5k micro fleece running hat, exclusive finisher medal and a virtual race bib mailed directly to you!

You can upload your virtual race results and share your virtual race day photos with your community. You will also be able to download your finisher certificate.

The Toronto Women’s virtual Half Marathon/10k/5k can be completed anywhere, by anyone, any time between Ocotber 23 to November 6, 2021. 

Choose your race distance and set the pace (virtually) with us this year.  

Most importantly, you can raise money for POGO and help kids and their families living with childhood cancer.  At times like these, it is more important than ever, that we come together to support and give back to our community members.
