Our virtual 5K event can be run or walked from any location you choose at any time you choose during the month of May. There is no official start time, nor do you have to drive to a specific location. You do not need to deal with traffic, parking or poor weather. Whenever your schedule permits it, put on your walking shoes and off you go, whether on a track, trail, road, or treadmill, it all counts.

You can run on your own or with friends and family, and it is open to anyone. At last year’s event, we had participants from around the globe join us ranging in age from 3 years old to 89.

Registration is $50.00, and includes a unique medal. Registration is open from February 28th – April 30th. Once you have registered, your medal will be mailed to you within 2-4 days.

All proceeds from this event will help people with Barth syndrome.

To register: 2nd Annual Virtual 5K – CanadaHelps
