I am a visually impaired runner. Where can I find out more about running with a guide?

If you are visually impaired and would like to be matched with a guide runner, please contact Achilles Canada at www.achillescanada.ca.

How do I register to run with a Guide?

You will register using the online registration system. Please contact info@canadarunningseries.com to provide your support person’s name and contact information.

When the participant picks up their race kit, they will receive the additional “GUIDE” bib.

Your guide has 2 options:

  • The guide can participate in the event at no cost. They will need to complete the event waiver and wear the event “GUIDE” bib on their back.
  • The guide can pay the full registration fee. They will receive the event shirt, bib with timing chip & finisher’s medal. They will need to wear the event “GUIDE” bib on their back.

I am running as a guide, how do I get my “guide” bib?

The participant that you are guiding will be given a guide bib with their bib. You will need to wear this bib on your back while guiding a participant in the event.

I am interested in running as a guide.

Thank you so much for your interest in being a guide for one of our participants! We at CRS do not coordinate guides, however I am sure that Achilles Canada at www.achillescanada.ca would love to hear from you.
