The Canada Day long weekend is coming up, and running a race is always a great way to celebrate. Not only is Canada Day a holiday, it falls on a Friday this year, meaning you’ll have the rest of the weekend to recover.
Races to celebrate Canada’s birthday will be in full swing on Friday for the first time in since 2019. There will be all kinds of Canada-themed celebrations (and swag) available at these races to help you make the most of it. Here’s a look at a few races that are happening.
