2021 Virtual Summer Series
This annual series-style event is comprised of three legs - biking, walking and running - that can be conquered as an individual or as part of a team. Though it's a series-style event, you can choose to register for 1, 2, or all 3 of the event legs. As an organization that promotes inclusion, you are also able to choose the distance goals that suit your fitness and abilities, which will help motivate you during each leg of the event.
There is a $15 registration fee for each leg with the proceeds going towards Special Olympics Alberta. Special Olympics Alberta athletes can register for free!
Bike - From Jul 5th to Jul 26th
- 25km, 50km, 100km, 250km, 500km, 750km, 1000km
Walk - From Jul 26th to Aug 16th

Individuals that participate in all three events will be presented with a 2021 Virtual Summer Series medal.
This three-part series has suggested time frames for each leg of the event and we encourage people to complete the events during the suggested 21 day time frames (bike from July 5th to July 26th, walk from July 26th to August 16th, run from August 16th to September 6th). Because we are an organization of inclusion, distances will continue to be accumulated in our overall totals no matter when they are completed but will register on the progress thermometer once that leg officially starts. The series wraps up on September 6th.
$1000 – A choice of either a hooded jacket or packable puffy jacket
The first 100 paid registrants will also receive a $5 Tim's gift card.
Blitz weekends are the final weekends of each leg of the Virtual Summer Series! During Blitz weekends, you will be entered into a draw for an incentive for every $50 you fundraise!
