LEGS FOR LITERACY PRESENTED BY MEDAVIE.
LIVE EVENT ON OCTOBER 21 & 22, 2023
We are back for 2023. Yes, that's right ! We are having a live race this year!
Distances will include a 5k, 10k, Half-marathon and Half-marathon team relay.
Mark October 21-22, 2023 as "Race Weekend" on your calendars for the 2023 Legs for Literacy event. There will still be virtual options too for each distance.
Each participant will receive a medal and a t-shirt, as well as a wave of gratitude from our partners working in literacy organizations, who greatly need our support in these challenging times.
In past events, approximately 3000 runners and walkers participated in various race day events: including a full marathon, half marathon, 10k and 5k and Team Relays. Another 450 school-aged children competed in our Family Run Walk which encourages children at the elementary and middle school levels to make healthy physical activity a part of their daily routine. In 2022 when we had a virtual race we raised over $40,000 to local literacy projects, bringing our total to date to over $840,000 thanks to the enormous generosity of the running community and our sponsors.
Join us in 2023 for some fun!
