Move Collingwood – National Health and Fitness Day

Project Description

June 3rd, 2017 is Canada’s National Health & Fitness Day. Come celebrate Healthy, Active Living and run or walk in one of our events on the beautiful Collingwood Trail network. You don’t need to be a seasoned runner or run at all, just come out and move! 1K, 2K, 5K and 10K events are available. All ages are welcome and family participation is applauded.

Bring your kids and enrol them in the 1K or 2K Kid’s races. If they are keen athletes they may want to try the 5K or 10K events! There will be fun activities on site made available by the Healthy Kids Community Challenge.

This fun event is organized in cooperation of the Georgian Triangle Running Club, The Collingwood YMCA, Town of Collingwood and the Healthy Kids Community Challenge.

The Showcase is a great way to find out more about local sports organizations and health professionals and make plans for a summer filled with fun activities.  There will be showcase booths and demonstrations including Wheelchair Basketball, Yoga, Lawn Bowling and Tai Chi.  Come on out and try a new activity freebetween 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. at the Collingwood Curling Club.

Bring your bicycle and celebrate Bike Month. Enjoy the Rails & Ramps Bike Zone perfect for kids to practice their riding skills and get extra tips from Ride Guides.

Run, walk, move on June 3rd!  For all the details visit

Project Goal

The celebration will feature the Move Collingwood Run & Walk as well as The Showcase. It all starts at 9 a.m. at Central Park with an active, jam-packed day full of fun for all ages inside the Collingwood Curling Club, on the Trails and in the parks of Central Park.

On National Health & Fitness Day, municipalities and residents hold events to celebrate and promote the use of local health, recreational, sports and fitness facilities. The objective is to inspire Canadians to become fitter and more active which will result in reduced health care costs attributed to preventable disease related to inactivity.
