Active living in Kingston Ontario

Beat Beethoven on Sunday June 5

Beat BeethovenPoor Beethoven has been beaten by thousands of people over the past 20 Years. On Sunday, June 5, 2016, another 1,000 will no doubt beat him again. This year marks our 21st year. The race begins as the music does – a full 50 minutes of Beethoven’s best. The challenge is to run the 8km course or the walk/run the 4km course before the orchestra strikes the last chord. After the walk and run take place, the Kingston Symphony performs a free concert in Confederation Park for all.

This event is family friendly, accepting participants of all ages.
