#StayHomeTely2020 Details

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the 93rd Tely 10 Mile Road Race, scheduled for November 1, 2020, is cancelled. The next edition of the race will be on July 25, 2021, or when the public health guidelines allow us to hold an in-person race.

To keep the spirit of the event alive, we are introducing our 1st Virtual Tely 10: #StayHomeTely2020.

#StayHomeTely2020 will offer four virtual challenges expanding on the traditional in-person 10-mile event to include shorter and longer distances.

#StayHomeTely2020 challenges include an opportunity for kids to participate, and runners who enjoy longer endurance events.

#StayHomeTely2020 will allow participants to run or walk at their own pace, anytime and anyplace! Participants can choose their start and finish lines, and as there is no designated course, they can be active on a treadmill or a neighbourhood street. As the times and distance covered is based on an honour system, there is no finishing order, and there are no placing awards.

#StayHomeTely2020 challenges will feature:
- Kids Tely-10 Mile (ages 6 to 11) (born in the year 2009 through 2014
- Tely-5 Mile (age 12 and older) (born in the year 2008 and earlier)
- Tely-10 Mile (age 15 and older) (born in the year 2005 and earlier)
- 92-Mile Endurance Tely (age 18 and older) (born in 2002 and earlier)

Further information on #StayHomeTely2020 will be provided over the next days (click here for details on the 1st virtual Tely 10).
