In 2020, when in-person Torch Runs could not be held, Torch Runners made a pivot and the Global Virtual Torch Run was born! Last September, Torch Runners and Special Olympics supporters all over Ontario took to the streets, sidewalks, trails, water and whatever other surface could be found to support the athletes of Special Olympics Ontario virtually!
Fast forward to 2021, and even though the Global Virtual Torch Run isn't being held this year, Torch Run Ontario is back with the 2021 Ontario Virtual Torch Run!
The 2021 Ontario Virtual Torch Run launches May 3rd and runs for 34 days (to celebrate 34 years of Torch Run in Ontario!). The virtual run culminates on June 5th, which is also National Health & Fitness Day!
Keep an eye on your e-mails, as well as the Torch Run Ontario website and social media channels for more information!
