Staying active during this time of social distancing is important for our mental and physical wellbeing. Due to COVID-19 still being present within the community, the Recreation & Community Services Department has redesigned the in-person 8th Annual Ontario 5K Reindeer Run & Rudolph’s Dash.
The Ontario Recreation & Community Services Department is excited to offer the Rudolph’s Merry Mask Virtual 5K Reindeer Run/Walk.
All proceeds from this virtual race will be donated to Ontario-Montclair Promise Scholars, an award winning program designed to assist Ontario-Montclair youth by helping prepare them in their journey towards a college education, and the Youth Empowerment Scholarship (Y.E.S.), which gives Ontario children from low income families the opportunity to participate in recreation programs and classes.

What is a Virtual 5K Run?
