The 2019 EPIC Canadian Run For Canada events are again hosted at Grahams Grove Park on the shores of Lake Banook in Dartmouth, starting Monday, July 1st, at 8AM for The Maple Leaf 10K, followed at 9:30AM by The Canadian 5K. We will use the same race format EPIC pioneered within Canada in 2014, the EPIC Double-In-A-Day: two distances, back-to-back, 90 minutes apart, for a total of 15K, and the additional challenge of posting your best total time for the 15K distance as well. 5K, 10K, 15K – your choice!
We were overwhelmed by the positive response to the first of the “CANADA” medals last year, and are excited to share 2019’s Bonus medal design. You will be able to earn this third medal through completing the EPIC Double-In-A-Day, or through a Canada Medals Virtual Run.
Earning each CANADA medal is a special achievement, and we also need to find ways to be as inclusive as possible, giving every participant a chance to partake, even if they are new to running, or need to spread their two events out over more than a single day. To address this need, we have added CANADA Medals Catch Up VIRTUAL RUN registration options that will allow a 2019 participant to complete their EPIC Canadian distances on their own to earn the C or A medal.
Virtual Race Registration for the Maple Leaf 10K, The Canadian 5K or the Double-in-A-Day: You are still able to participate Virtually from anywhere in the world. After you select your choice of distance(s), please select and add the correct shipping option on the next page – that is how we will know your race kit is to be shipped! Our plan is to ship the Virtual Kits the week of June 10th, so while we cannot guarantee that you will have your virtual race kits on July 1st, it is our expectation that you will.
