The global, virtual RBC Race for the Kids is coming back!

Join us on 16-17 October 2021 to support 35 youth charities around the world. Entries open 16 August.

Welcome to the RBC Global Race for the Kids!
A Family Fun Run Supporting Kids and Youth around the World

RBC Race for the Kids started as a single event in 2009 and is now an exciting series of 17 charitable races taking place around the world, supporting children and youth-focused causes. Altogether, the series has raised more than CAD$57 million to date.

Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, most of our races can’t happen in person this year. Knowing the positive impact of our collective action for our communities, and that the need from charities is greater than ever before, we created the RBC Global Virtual Race for the Kids and invited our existing charity partners to join us. Plus, we have added nearly 20 new charities to help make this year’s event truly global.
