>General Running>Canadians! Join the Rona Collective Relay to support Canadian Olympic Athletes (for every km, Rona will plant a tree!)
Proud national partner of the Canadian Olympic team, RONA cheers on Canadians showing their support to our athletes by participating in a collective relay consisting of running 5,515 km, the distance from Victoria to Halifax. Whether you are walkers or runners, beginner or advanced, show your support.
For every kilometre run, RONA will plant one tree in support of reforestation programs across Canada.
