Railway City Road Races 2021 will be a virtual event again this year.  We miss seeing you all in person but remain committed to supporting our community in a safe manner. Masco has generously come on board again this year to be our title sponsor. We are so grateful for their support during this challenging time. 


This year, we are hosting a live, virtual race weekend! Begnning at  6pm Friday September 24th and ending at 6pm Sunday September 26th, we are asking participants to run the distance of their choice and post pictures along the way on our social media platforms. Register for a 5 km, 10 km or 21 km distance and complete it any time during the weekend. There is also a FREE registration option with an opportunity to raise some money for the STEGH Foundation and you will receive a charitable receipt. 

Please ensure you are applying the rules of the road to your race to stay safe. Be sure to like our Facebook page @railwaycityroadraces and share your photos and favourite running and walking routes and paths around Elgin County to inspire others to join and experience your favourite route. 

Registration closes on Wednesday, September 1st at midnight. If you choose the 5km, 10km or 21km race options you will have your choice of either a t-shirt or a medal. Register early to ensure you get a race t-shirt prior to the race weekend as w e will be out roaming the streets throughout the weekend looking for runners and sharing your experience. We will preview the shirt and medal in the coming weeks. Our designers are working away at something extra special. We also have a store in the registration process if you would like to purchase a medal, t-shirt or hoodie.


The past months have been challenging for all of us and we miss being able to gather in person in support of our community and our hospital. But, we will get through this and we will be able to gather again! We hope you join us for our 2021 Virtual Event to show your support for our hospital and that you have some fun and enjoy our great outdoors in the process. We can't wait to see your photos!


T-shirt and Medal Pickup will take place at Railway City Health Hut September 21-23rd during regular business hours. The Health Hut is conveniently located at the Elgin Centre, Wellington Street, St. Thomas.
