The RBC Canadian Open 5K Run, which is open to golf fans, runners and walkers, takes participants through a five kilometre route of the Glen Abbey Golf Club layout. The route begins at the first tee of Glen Abbey’s championship course setup and finishes alongside the iconic 18th green. All registered participants receive a 2017 RBC Canadian Open Anyday ticket, a race t-shirt, finisher’s medal, bib, timing chip and the opportunity to experience a PGA TOUR event venue just days prior to tournament week.
Walking and running enthusiasts can take part in a timed running event, while passionate golf fans can enjoy the atmosphere of the Glen Abbey Golf Club just days prior to the arrival of top PGA TOUR players. The event welcomed more than 300 participants in 2016, and organizers are bullish that number will increase for the second rendition of the event.
In addition to the 5K run, participants are invited to enjoy live coverage of The British Open Championship on large screens, and relax post-race in the Coors Light Beer Gardens.
Early bird registration begins at $50. Participants can register and find more information by visiting www.golfrun.ca.
