Welcome to RBC Race for the Kids

What started as a single Race in New York in 2009, RBC Race for the Kids has grown into a series of 25+ family fun races that take place around the world. More than 360,000 participants have raised over $82 million CAD for youth charities across the globe.

This year, you can participate one of two ways!

  1. Sign up for the live in-person RBC Race for the Kids event in your community
  2. Or sign up for the virtual RBC Race for the Kids Weekend on October 14-15, joining participating communities where no in-person events are taking place

Either way you, and your friends and family, can support a local youth charity and be part of RBC Race for the Kids.

Learn more about the races and register today!

Participating is simple! Here is how to get involved:


Select the charitable race in your region


Take part in-person throughout the year, or virtually on October 14-15


Invite your friends, family, and colleagues to join the fun
