2021 National 5K Road Race for elite seniors, masters and teams to go virtual
Registration is now open for teams of four runners
About: September 12th, 2021 is when the virtual stage is set for Athletics Canada and the organizing committee (ANB & RunNB) to host the Canadian Elite Seniors, Masters and new this year, a team competition. The latter aims to bring together men and women runners from across Canada to have fun, promote their training group or Club, and compete for national bragging rights. We therefore invite you to form your team and sign up. Awards will include cash prizes for the national winners, team prizes and finishers’ medals.
Team Titles: The top 3 M&W teams in Canada and the top M&W teams in each province. If your province registers more than 8 teams per category, we will add a 2nd place silver medal and if more than twelve teams, then 3rd place bronze medals. The more the merrier. The best two prizes will be the draw prizes to encourage participation.
