2020 GODDESS RUN

Goddess Run Details

Due to the global pandemic, the 2020 Goddess Run will now be a virtual run.

A message from Cathy, our Chief Goddess

I hope you and your family are staying healthy during these tumultuous times. I am sure you aren’t surprised by this message, but with the current ban on events and crowds, and with the safety of each of our wonderful Goddesses in mind, we have decided to move from an in-person event to a virtual experience for this year’s Goddess Run. While not the situation any of us wanted, luckily we have lots of experience in the Virtual Goddess Run world!

Since we made this announcement we had more Goddesses registering, and our Goddess elves delivered packages to over 650 of you!  We hope you love your race package!

We’ve partnered with Race Roster and the ASICS Runkeeper™ app to bring you a great virtual run/walk experience! Click the link below to find detailed instructions and FAQs on tracking via the app or manually posting your results. Please take a few moments to review this before you start your Goddess 2020!

CLICK HERE for information on how to submit your Goddess results.

To be eligible for prizes, we will have a window of June 1 to June 22 for you to complete your Goddess Virtual Run.

This is a new landscape for all of us, so don’t hesitate to reach out with questions. We are here to help navigate change with you as you get ready to participate virtually.

Take care Goddesses!

Course Map

Our 2020 Course Map will be available in the spring. In the meantime, here’s what 2019 was all about!

What do goddesses like in a route?   Shade, frequent water stops, great volunteers, music, cheer stations, quiet roads and trails…..

This year you get it all!  This out and back route starting and finishing at Belmont School will make our Goddesses smile when they cross the finish line.

Roads and paths will wind through Westhills.  Away from traffic and with an out and back route you can cheer on and see all the costumes that the other participants will be wearing. We are sure you will find this to be the best Goddess course yet!

Fundraising

Goddess Run is proud to partner with the BC Cancer Foundation to support the Immunotherapy Clinical Trials Program. Phase 1 of this program focuses on Adoptive T Cell Therapy (ATC) and is set to begin in July. ATC activates and expands a patient’s own T cells (a type of white blood cell) and infuses large numbers back into the patient’s bloodstream to “seek and destroy” cancer cells wherever they may be hiding. The first trial at BC Cancer in Victoria will focus on treating gynecological cancers (ovarian, cervical and endometrial) with naturally occurring, tumour-fighting T cells.
