RunningFlat was founded on five simple ideas – safety, integrity, creating localized economic development, and providing a great Event experience for our family of participants, while raising money for great causes.
Safety is our primary concern, returning every competitor who crosses the finish line back to their families. All of our races are staffed with Doctors, Nurses or Paramedics and, from time to time, Cardiologists. RunningFlat is one of the few organizations in the world with a Staff Meteorologist keeping an eye to the sky, reducing the risk from microbursts for participants, spectators and volunteers.
Integrity starts with the Event itself. All of our races and courses are fully measured and certified by Athletics Canada and are recognized by USATF and IAAF. When you choose your distance and race, you can be assured that it is accurate, and will be properly marked.
RunningFlat Events are localized to create economic development for local BIAs, Towns or Regional Municipalities. Each run is exciting in course layout and host location. Participants are encouraged to shop locally before and after the run, thanking merchants for their patience and cooperation with road closures.
Your Event experience is our focus. Every run is focused on the participants’ ultimate enjoyment, from fun themes and interesting route scenery to the top-drawer swag and bling. Local charities, volunteers, and race officials are an integral part of the experience. Without them, there would be no Event.
Thank you for your support. We value your feedback, as the voice of the participant is very important to us. We strive to be the best in the world at what we do, and are always excited to introduce innovative technologies and ideas.
