In April, we put out the call to runners across Canada to share pictures of their favourite trails, paths, roads, beaches and mountains to run across this vast and storied land we call home. And answer that call they did, with glowing hearts aplenty!
Since then, we’ve been scouring through thousands of pictures of tall trees, calm lakes, muddy feet, and every and all types of weather (naturally, ‘cause Canada) to collect the Top 150 Places to Run in Canada. Now, we're revealing our list, a few peeks at a time.
On Canada Day, we began posting Instagram Stories of some of our favourite #RUN150 entries so far. And we'll continue to do so all summer! Be sure to check in every day to see if your photo makes the list and to discover new running routes to explore in your neck of the woods.
What’s that? Can’t wait to get to your phone?
Alright then, because you asked... Here are the FIRST 15 of the Top 150 Places to Run in Canada! Discovered by runners like you, these places capture the magic of running in the True North Strong and Free.

Aching to share your favourite running sights? Good news! The contest is open all summer long so keep on marveling at the immense beauty that we are so lucky to run alongside and keep sending us your #RUN150 nominations.
Not only might you see your favourite country lane featured on our list, your entry will also put you in the running (hey!) for the grand prize of a year’s supply of Saucony shoes. Just post your photo with #Run150 between now and September 4, let us know where it was taken, why you love it there, and you’re in! Read our contest conditions for additional information.
So get out there and run. And bring your camera. Show us what makes you so proud to be a Canadian runner!
Happy Canada 150!
