That’s a Wrap!
We are so happy with the success of the 2021 Virtual TC10K! We could not be more thrilled with how many joined us in this adventure! And how incredible the spirit and energy was for our community event.
We want to give a huge shout out to our small but mighty committee, and especially to Keith, Mark, Eliel, Lucy and Tami as well as Nick from Frontrunners and Tara from Race Roster. They worked so hard to make this event seem like more than just your average virtual run.
We want to thank our sponsors who were so kind to join us in this virtual landscape!

ROYAL VICTORIA MARATHON – ROYAL FLUSH SERIES
To celebrate the return of the Royal Victoria Marathon name, and with the uncertainty of what is to come with events in this Fall, the Royal Flush Virtual Series was born. With the idea of keeping your training going for the time leading up to what would normally be the Victoria Marathon, a natural progression of distances was announced.
So think a game of poker and your top hand is the royal flush. Five cards – five distances. With a 1 Mile, 5K, 10K, Half Marathon and Marathon distance, there is a natural progression as you increase your distance. But you can also complete just one distance or combine two to make a pair. Lots of swag and bragging rights included!
The event raises funds for a number of charities through its Charity Pledge Program.
