This fundraiser is to support the Canadian Mountain Running Team by covering a portion of the costs to go to World Mountain Running Championships!
The Canadian Team is competing at the World Mountain Running Championships and World Long Distance Mountain Running Championships in La Angostura, Argentina on November 15th and 16th, 2019.
Why Should I Support This?
The Canadian Mountain Running Team does not receive any outside support for its athletes. Mountain running as a sport receives very little support either at home or internationally. This means that the athletes need to cover the full costs of their travel to Argentina and the costs of their own uniforms.
We made a short documentary about the Canadian Mountain Running Championships in Quebec City, QC this year. Now you can follow the team as they head to the World Stage in Argentina!
Where do my funds go?
All funds raised through this GoFundMe campaign will be provided to the athletes.
Funding for the team support our Canadian team on their quest to compete on the World stage. The athletes have the following expenses for the World Mountain Running Championships: 21 athletes x uniforms (approximately $200 CAD each) = $4,200 CAD 21 athletes x return flights to Argentina (approximately $1000 CAD each) = $21,000 CAD
