Step Up 2021

Step Up for Mental Health, powered by Cameco, is back with another incredible swag package for our virtual 5K/10K event from Oct. 1-6, 2021.

This year’s swag package features a fresh design and new colours:

  • Step Up running shirt (bright yellow)
  • Step Up bunnyhug (dark green)
  • Custom medal
  • AND a 160-page running/walking journal full of inspirational quotes and photo testimonials from past Step Up participants

Pretty cool, eh? But Step Up is more than a single run in October – it’s an ongoing journey of wellness and we want to support you every step of the way.

In addition to tracking your goals and achievements in the running journal, we invite you to join the Step Up Virtual Run Club on Facebook and get free training tips from Brainsport and Zone Sports Physiotherapy, as well as tons of encouragement from the Step Up community.

As always, 100% of your registration fee – plus a matching amount from Cameco – supports the Cameco Fund for Mental Health, administered by the Saskatoon Community Foundation. In just two years, you’ve helped raise nearly $800,000 to assist mental health projects and programs in dozens of Saskatchewan communities. With your help, we’ll blast past that million-dollar milestone in 2021, so we’re gonna go ahead and say thanks a million in advance!

Please note that registration fees increase the closer we get to October (see below), so take advantage of early-bird pricing for best value.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

How do I get my swag?
Starting in June, we’ll have drive-through swag pickup in Saskatoon, plus drive-through pickup in Regina, North Battleford and Lloydminster (dates to be determined). If you live outside a 40-km radius of Saskatoon, your swag package will be mailed to you after June 28.

How does the virtual event work?
With COVID-19 restrictions still in place, we are following the guidance of public health officials to ensure a safe event. The 2021 virtual event runs the same as last year:

  • You choose your own starting line, whether it's a treadmill or an outdoor route in your community. (Please note that registration is limited to Canada and US participants.)
  • Complete your race distance (5K or 10K) between Oct. 1-6, upload your finishing time through Race Roster and you’ll receive your medal in the mail. (Watch for upload instructions closer to the event.)
