Can I do this run outside of Yellowknife? We encourage fitness anywhere in the world everyday, but for liability reasons this virtual event is restricted to Yellowknife on May 3.

#1 rule - People should ABSOLUTELY NOT be doing this as an organized group run. This is a Physically Distancing event and all rules in place from the GNWT, federal and local governments MUST be respected. READ THE WAIVER CAREFULLY.


Plan your own route outside and physically distant from others — or indoors on a treadmill. It’s your choice. Walk/Run/Roll - anything non-motorized - just be legal and be safe! Do it on your own time on May 3 *or* tune in to our virtual starting corral on Zoom for the mass physically distant start! Then take Zoom with your or tune back in at your finish line. Share your results in the Zoom chat or brag on social media!


As usual please note this is a fun non-competitive event!

If running outside be sure to:

  • bring a phone with you for emergency,
  • plan proper fueling (food/water),
  • dress for the conditions,
  • plan your route to avoid congestion and traffic,
  • DO NOT use headphones,
  • notify someone of your route, started and finish (RoadID has an app!)


As with all Series events, there are no prizes for first place. The only requirement is that you participate and have a good time. Run for a PB, walk with a dog or just have a nice day out celebrating how we can come together as a helping community while being active.
