#StayHomeTely2020

 Updated on Tuesday, August 18, 2020

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 offers 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 allows participants to run, walk, or wheel (push-rim), 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.

If you are outdoors, you must follow the safety guidelines set by your province/state/area. Stay active, stay safe and respect social distancing.
  • #StayHomeTely2020 is not a race, and no results will be posted; instead, we will publish an alphabetical list of participants that have completed their challenge.
