2021 is a virtual 5K and 10K
Hello Walkers & Runners,
The Cinnamon Bun Fun Run - Virtual 5K Run / Walk and 10K Run is presented by the Ladysmith Resources Centre Association (LRCA).
This year, the Cinnamon Bun Fun Run is a virtual charity walk/run promoting healthy outdoor family activity before the holiday season and also provides some much needed resources to the LRCA and its many programs. The event will feature a VIRTUAL 5K RUN/WALK and a VIRTUAL 10K RUN. Price for registration this year is $10/adult (13 and over) and $5/child (12 and under). All proceeds benefit the LRCA.
We unfortunately cannot operate a 'predicted finishing time' for participants this year like in year’s past, but we anticipate runners and walkers will enjoy getting outside with family, engaging in some exercise and enjoying some delicious treats.
LRCA is proud to report that all participants will receive the limited edition "Cinnamon Bun Fun Run cookie" from the Old Town Bakery in Ladysmith.
Old Town Bakery continues to jam their delicious cinnamon buns into a cookie. You must be registered for a virtual event to receive these delicious treats.
We thank you in advance as we aim to make this an enjoyable "virtual" family event that ensures the health and safety of Cinnamon Bun Fun Run participants and our volunteers, while also raising awareness and resources for the LRCA.
You choose your start time and on the date that works best for you! You just need to complete your virtual event at any point prior to Nov. 28, 2021.
You chose your route! We will be making the usual Cinnamon Bun Fun Run route available for anyone that would like to stick to tradition.
The Cinnamon Bun Fun Run Virtual 5K Run / Walk and 10K Run event will be limited to a maximum capacity of 600 registrants. In previous years this event has sold out quickly.
In years past, registrants under the age of 13 on the day of the race have had their registration discounted on the payment step. This year those participants will receive a $5 discount.
You can complete your virtual run or walk at any point between when you register to Nov. 28, 2021.
Remember to track your run or walk with a device. Save a screenshot of your run or walk so you can upload this to your Race Roster results. Once you have uploaded your results then you are ready to nab some Cinnamon Bun cookies. Please note that the results can be uploaded between Nov. 25 to Nov. 28, 2021.

Perhaps the most important question of all! You've set up a 5K or 10K route and you've even tracked your run/walk. You logged into Racer Roster and submitted your results. Now you're dreaming of those limited edition Cinnamon Bun Fun Run cookies from Old Town Bakery.
