The Moonlight Run is going virtual again for 2021!
Registration for the virtual Moonlight Run will be starting in mid-December and the event will run from March 20 to 28.
This year's event will include our traditional distances of 6 km and 10 km and in celebration of the Moon there will be two events added: distances representing 0.01% of the distance to the Moon (384,400 km) or to the Moon and back (768,800 km).
Participants in the 38.44 km or 76.88 km events will be able to accumulate mileage over the nine days to count towards their total.
We hope you'll join us for the journey!

Between 8am Saturday, March 20th and midnight on March 28th 2021 you must run or walk your route and log your time (and distances for the Moon Challenges). The virtual run is based on the honour system of posting genuine times and distances. You can run/walk the course of your choice, or on a treadmill (yay, no hills or -30 temps!) and track it on your phone or watch.
We will email you a link and login information to your dashboard 2 days prior to the start. Before posting your time you will be required to enter the code we email you. Please note you will only be able to post your time ONCE. Should you decide to change your distance or need to correct your age category or gender you can do so in the dashboard area. If you need assistance please contact us here by email or text.
We will be posting complete results here after the completion of the virtual run and both Finisher Certificates and Age Category winner Certificates will be available. Text results will be sent out after the virtual run closes to all participants who signed up for this service.
