Register for the 24th Annual Virtual Dairy Capital Run
*Race Kits were mailed out the week of May 18. Canada Post is experiencing high parcel volumes, so the the kits are taking longer than anticipated to be delivered. Please know they are on their way and will hopefully get to you soon.*
We have been closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and know the Dairy Capital Run cannot go forth un-altered for 2020. We are excited to announce that we are shifting the Dairy Capital Run into a virtual run. This will be a great year to shake things up, get creative, and implement different things a traditional run doesn’t allow.
What is a Virtual Run and what does this mean for you?
A virtual run is still an interactive and fun running event, it just means that you get to run or walk your registered race distance, whenever and wherever you want. That means you can run 5K on your treadmill, or you can walk 2K on your favourite trail. Its whatever you want it to be. The virtual run will start on Sunday, May 24 (the original Dairy Capital Run event date) and will run until June 24. This gives you an entire month to complete your distance. You will still receive this year’s Dairy Capital Run branded shirt and bib in the mail. Anyone who registers after May 1 won't receive their shirt and bib until mid June. If you registered before May you should receive your shirt and bib mid-May.
Due to circumstances beyond our control we are unable to mail out medals this year. Our medal manufacturer has been closed due to COVID-19 and there is no timeline on when they will reopen and be able to produce the medals.
More details on the run and information on fun contests we will be doing, will be sent closer to May 24.
The Dairy Capital Run is a fundraiser in support of the Woodstock Hospital Foundation. All proceeds stay right here in our community and go directly towards upgrading technology and equipment at Woodstock Hospital. Technology allows us to provide prompt diagnoses, quicker recovery, and overall better patient care to Oxford County residents. But it is constantly evolving and improving which makes the need to update our existing equipment and purchase new technology ever present. Without funding from the provincial government to support the purchase of equipment, we rely on the generosity of our community to fund the equipment needs of the hospital. By participating in the Dairy Capital Run, you are supporting patient care at our hospital.
