Virtual Marathons in 2021

4 September 2021

With COVID lingering on and impacting our lives, in June Ontario allowed outdoor activities and the GGSCF asked everyone to complete a virtual marathon starting July 1, 2021 even if it meant doing this in stages over a number of day or over the month. The response was amazing with many submissions and the ones who submitted a photo we are able to share with you. Some completed the feat within the first week, some took longer, some did not stop at a marathon distance and made it a month of long distance walking covering many marathons. Some completed it individually, while other completed with family or friends. As the word spread some completed this in August. The TPARC took to cycling around Ontario to make the most of the outdoors. As government restrictions allowed more people to gather outdoors those who wanted some face to face contact completed their distances in Chinguacousy Park. Paul Bains from “enlight” set the date for their 4th Annual run/walk for the first weekend in October. If you completed the marathon distance 42.2km we would like to congratulate you and we hope you keep up the activity so that you can complete the marathon yourself or as a team in next year’s Inspirational Steps.
