Run Canada Month
Run Canada Month focuses on four main priorities; Run Canada Races, Run Canada School Program, media engagement and Endurance Group support.
Run Canada Races feature events from across the country during the month of April. The races are generally existing events which will be promoted through the Run Canada website and media partners.
The School Program "Can your class run a marathon?" encourages classes to cumulatively run a marathon. It also provides class project suggestions such as researching Canadian Running heroes and the history of the sport while interacting with national team athletes.
Through a far reaching partnership media partners promote Run Canada Month. Included in this aspect of the initiative are articles on training written by many of Canada's top athletes, local running hot spots, race opportunities, among many others.
The final tier of the project, Run Canada fundraising, supports elite road running athletes and programs. The objective is to generate proceeds through Run Canada Month to support Canada's top distance running athletes and programs as they pursue international glory.
