For the third year in a row, Canada Running Series is partnering with Lululemon for the Lululemon Toronto 10K, to be held on Saturday, June 15, 2019.
Following the inaugural event in 2018, the Lululemon Edmonton 10K will return to Alberta’s capital on Sunday, July 7, 2019. Owing to the popularity of the race last year – Edmonton sold out in 13 hours 27 minutes, the cap has been raised to 7,000 guests in 2019. The course will cross the High Level Bridge, run along scenic Saskatchewan Drive and the tree-lined streets of Windsor Park, back over the bridge and finish with a party at Alberta Legislature Grounds.
Ryan Chilibeck will be returning this year as the Western Race Director. Ryan is thrilled to bring the Canada Running Series + Lululemon experience to his hometown:
Chilibeck said, “I am so excited for the second year of the Lululemon Edmonton 10K. We may have worked incredibly hard to put on this amazing event in 2018 but the City of Edmonton absolutely brought the party! We were blown away. This city has one of the most engaged, energetic, and steadfast running communities in the entire country. The chance to work with them again is a highlight of the racing season. Our focus again will be for our guests to have the most amazing race experience that is memorable for racers, spectators, volunteers and our entire community.”
Lululemon’s involvement in the events includes:
- Complimentary Training Program: Participants will be able to take part in an 8-week training program in Toronto and Edmonton, led out of select Lululemon stores.
- Official Lululemon Participant Shirts: As the official retailer and apparel partner of the event, Lululemon will be providing a race shirt to all runners.
- Enhanced Cheer Stations: Runners will be treated to unique, on-site cheer stations featuring local entertainment.
- Post-Race Party: Runners and their families will be invited to a post-race party including music, yoga, recovery, multiple vendors and an overall really good time.
“We’re thrilled to continue our all-Canadian partnership with Lululemon,” said Canada Running Series executive race director, Alan Brookes. “We are both passionately committed to excellence, to innovation, and creating outstanding, unforgettable, leading-edge running experiences on a global stage. Together, I believe we can continue to re-invent the space people move in our country and send good vibes across the planet. ”
