KRRA Limestone Mile ~ Canada Day


Date(s) - Sunday, July 1, 2018
9:00 am - 11:00 pm

Downtown Kingston

It’s intense. It’s fast. It’s a kids race, a women’s race, a men’s race. It’s three races in one morning. It’s team competition. It’s the KRRA Canada Day Limestone Mile.

A Canada Day tradition, Canada Day Limestone Mile is organized and supported by the Kingston Road Runners Association in support of its charitable causes. We are excited to team with Kingston Interval House.

The course for this classic race distance starts in front of BMO on King St., Run west on King to Earl, left on Earl, left on Ontario, left on Market past Tir Nan Nog, left on King and do the route again, finishing in front of City Hall.

UPDATE: this year, due to last minute City of Kingston attractions on Ontario St., the course will be changed to start at the same location turning right on Earl St., right on Wellington, head East turning right on to Clarence St. then right back on to King St. to repeat the loop. The race will finish in front of Boucher Park.Mile Course 2.0

  • Registration on Race Day begins at City Hall, 8:00am.
  • Kid’s Race at 9am.
  • Women’s Race at 9:30am (approx).
  • Men’s Race at 10am (approx).
  • Awards and prizes to be given away after Men’s Race has completed.

4-some Team Competition

Build your team for this new team competition. Two men + two women make up each team. This is an opportunity for good runners (who may not be top three finishers) to combine their times for medals and bragging rights.

We’re making a slight change in 4-some team competition, this year. Instead of totaling the four times, the finish places will be added together. The team with the lowest score wins. Example: women’s 5th place and 21st place + men’s 8th place and 45th place finishes = 79pts. This makes it easier/faster for us to add up and gives equal scoring value in men and women’s races. Youth runners must run adult races to participate.
