Canada Running Series: Racing to Support Trans Canada Trail

Longtime supporter Canada Running Series is continuing their partnership with Trans Canada Trail for another year to support our work reducing barriers to the Trail.

We are proud to be a sustainability charity partner of Canada Running Series. Participants can select Trans Canada Trail as their chosen charity and raise funds in two ways: 

1 – By actively fundraising, asking their family, friends and community network to support their race by contributing to their chosen charity. 

2 – By making a charitable donation as part of their race registration. 

Participants can choose from a 5-kilometre, 10-kilometre, half marathon or full marathon event and support Trans Canada Trail at the same time! 

Promoting sustainability with the Green Bib Program

The Green Bib Program gives Canada Running Series participants the option to forgo a race shirt and medal as part of their race day experience. If a participant chooses the Green Bib option, a donation will be made to a participating sustainability charity in lieu of a race shirt and medal. On race day, they will be wearing a green bib to indicate this choice.

The Green Bib Program kicked off as a pilot project at the 2023 Vancouver Half-Marathon, as an effort by Canada Running Series to reduce the environmental footprint of races and support chosen sustainability charities. After a very successful pilot, the Green Bib Program has now expanded to Canada Running Series races across Canada. By offering the green bib as a registration option, Canada Running Series is offering participants a more sustainable option for race day – and giving to sustainability charity partners like Trans Canada Trail at the same time!

A partnership based on shared values

This partnership is a natural fit: both Trans Canada Trail and Canada Running Series are focused on providing healthy, active living opportunities where people can spend meaningful time outdoors. Both organizations also aim to further sustainability so that natural spaces can be enjoyed for years to come.

Increasing accessibility in the trail and racing sectors

Canada Running Series also shares Trans Canada Trail’s focus on increasing accessibility as a key priority in our work. Donations raised through this partnership will further Trans Canada Trail’s work in making the Trail safer and improving accessibility for all, allowing more people to experience Canada’s beautiful natural spaces.
