The Fun Run Virtual Edition

The Rotary Club of Barrie is proud to present the 33rd Annual Rotary Fun Run and Walk. Due to the affects of the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve adapted our usual waterfront event to an online platform. The event will take place VIRTUALLY the week of June 6-14th 2020. When presented with the challenge of our current global situation, we recognized that now more than ever we needed to come together and find ways for our community to feel like they are a part of something. The Fun Run virtual edition is a great way to do that. Individuals, families, and teams can get active (important for health and well-being), share goals, post pictures and celebrate their successes. People can make it as competitive as they want it to be. They can run specific 5K and 10K routes to compare their time to others, or they can choose their own route and activity and participate leisurely. We are proud to produce and event that is safe, inclusive and fun, so that Rotary can continue to give back to the community we love. I truly believe this virtual Fun Run has the potential to reach more people, and allow our club to have an even greater impact on the city of Barrie in the future.

As always, every project the Rotary Club of Barrie is involved with is 100% volunteer driven meaning every dollar from our sponsors is put back into our community. It will support organizations and initiatives like:

• Hospice Simcoe

• Simcoe Muskoka Regional Cancer Centre

• Barrie Public Library


• Nottawasaga Valley Conservation Authority

• Fort Willow Nine Mile Portage

• Community parks and greenspace enhancement


We are proud of our local and global involvement. For more than 110 years, Rotary’s people of action have used their passion, energy, and intelligence to take action on sustainable projects. From literacy and peace, to water and health, we are always working together to better our world, and we stay committed to the end.
