As Greater Moncton's premier running event we support literacy in South-East New Brunswick and promote active living in our communities. 

Our Story

Legs for Literacy, was started in 2000 by a small group of local runners and a team of enthusiastic volunteers. They saw a need for a community running event and decided that any funds raised would go to local school literacy programs.


The first event included 5 and 10 km distances. Over the years the race grew to include the half marathon distance, and in 2005 the marathon distance was added.

Due to amazing support from the running community and business sponsors, Legs for Literacy has continued to grow year after year! Our race has grown into the largest running event in New Brunswick.
