THE K2J VIRTUAL RUN ACROSS CANADA
Starting Monday April 27, 2020 K2J Fitness started to run across Canada in a virtual kind of way!
We will run the first 5000 km roughly following the route taken by Terry Fox in 1980. Sadly, he had to end his run in Thunder Bay but we will continue on to Victoria. The entire route will be a little over 8100 km.
Here is how it works:
Track you weekly kilometres run and/or walked
At the end of the week use the link to the form below to enter your distance for the week. The week begins on Monday and ends on Sunday. So week 1 will be April 27th to May 3rd.
We will add it all up and let you know weekly how far we have gone and where we are in Canada.
We started April 27th in Saint John's Newfoundland 80 runners and walkers traveled a total 3484.91 km !
We ended up by a farm (pictured below) just outside of Roseneath Ontario. Which is famous for it's historic carousel. Wayne Ronstadt even wrote a song about it! You can see the route we took and find more details including a link to the song here.
