Important Race Info for the Virtual Run for L'Arche

 

The Virtual Run for L'Arche is right around the corner!! Starting this Saturday, March 28th to Saturday, April 4th, we are all taking to our secluded "courses" to run 1K, 5K, 10K, and the Half Marathon. To comply with the recommended social distancing, we encourage all of our runners to run on your treadmills, in your backyard, or around your community, where there is little chance of running into groups of people. Your health and safety are our highest priority!

 

Planning to still run your distance on March 28th? Then let people know! Post a picture of yourself on your social media today with the caption "I'm still running for L'Arche on March 28th" with the hashtags #RogersInsuranceRunforLarche and #VirtualRunforLarche and tag us too! @LarcheCalgary and @RunforLarche. Ask people to continue to donate to L'Arche. 

If you did not request that your race kits be mailed to you as per our last email, our mail-out service is now unavailable (except for out of town participants). All distance runners and volunteers can pick up your

race kits from Strides Marda Loop (3566 Garrison Gate S.W. Calgary, Alberta,

T2T 6N1) from Wednesday, March 25th to Sunday 29th.

 

Don't forget to take plenty of photos or videos to share with us on social media!

Use the hashtags #RogersInsuranceRunforLarche and #VirtualRunforLarche

and tag us too! @LarcheCalgary and @RunforLarche.

We will be watching!
