OCTOBER 17, 2021

Beautiful fall colours are the canvas to this art themed extravaganza. Runners and walkers take to the trails of the picturesque Boyd Conservation Area in Kleinburg, just west of Canada’s Wonderland. Chip timed and fully supported, the 10K, 5K, and 2K course ensure an inclusive event that is challenging for all while remaining family-friendly. All participants receive a tech shirt or hat, finishers medal, an ample finish line feast, and digital download of all race day photos ensuring your art in motion is captured for all to see!

We raise money and awareness in support of patient care and research at SickKids Rheumatology and for the Dr. Bonnie Cameron Post-Secondary Scholarship.
Participation is free for fundraisers who raise over $150, with those raising over $1,000 treated to a champagne toast and a VIP swag bag.

Your safety is important to us. At this time, we feel that it will be safe to race in October. To help us ensure this, Runanthropic/Art In Motion 10K/5K/2K has joined Athletics Ontario and have had our race sanctioned (AO Sanctioning #2021 10001). Essentially, this binds us to following the Safe Sport protocols set up by them.  For COVID, Athletics Ontario will be following the guidelines developed by the National task force, Back on Track. 


Athletics Ontario has also highlighted any additional or differing guidelines that have been set specifically by the Province of Ontario. That information and the Road & Trail Risk Assessment and Safety Recommendations can be found on their website at

Broadly, it encompasses many of the elements we have been living with day to day: Social distancing; handwashing & hygiene; food & fluid distribution; start lines; finish lines; social distancing on courses; and the list goes on.

To be completely transparent, we are too far out from our race to determine exactly what some of these components will look like. Our duties and responsibilities are different than they were even just a few weeks ago.

But what we can tell you is this: 

  • Our event is completely outside except for washrooms.
  • We will have lots of hand sanitizer available.
  • Encouraging masking when not competing.
  • Race Kit Pick-up is already on site and outside, but we are looking at creative ways to make this process faster, thus, less bunching up.
  • We have discussed with our timer (Speed River) the ability to have wave starts to keep people distanced at the start.
  • Spacing out of events to keep crowds down.
  • There is plenty of room in our main Start/Finish area to keep people the requisite distance apart.
  • Aid stations are likely to have only bottled water and/or Gatorade.
  • We will be encouraging participants to carry their own hydration if possible.
  • Our 10K is likely to be a point to point to avoid two-way traffic and congestion on the course (we’ve had construction issues the past few years that should be resolved by race day 2021).
  • Revamp of our 5K for this year to keep it off the smaller trail (thus reducing crowding and two-way interaction).
  • Finish line food will be handed out by volunteers in a ‘grab and go’ style – again this is all outside – maintaining social distancing and minimizing/eliminating touching and contact as much as possible.
  • Even though spectators are allowed under Stage 3 (75% of venue capacity), we will likely  dissuade spectators and encourage only those who need to come to race day, be there.
  • We will likely not have our Art’s and Crafts Market and encourage people to simply leave once they have completed their race.

There are many more, little, but equally important details left out of what we have planned and  thought about. Final decisions on exactly what Race Day will look like won’t likely come until September when we have a better idea of what the public will be comfortable with, and what public  health and Athletics Ontario will allow.
