Welcome to St. John's!

Come run or walk with us on Canada Day in St. John's – one of the oldest cities in North America! A city unlike any other, St. John's Newfoundland is cradled in a harbour carved from granite, and surrounded by hills running down to the ocean. There are quaint side streets of a thousand colours, and friendly faces everywhere, waiting to greet you.

This year, the Hbc Run for Canada will set up in the city's lovely Bowring Park, one of the most historic spots in St. John's, and headquarters for our food tents and entertainment. From here, runners will race past some of St. John's favourite sights and neighbourhoods. Plan to spend some of your day in the Park following the race, where there will be fun activities and entertainment for the whole family courtesy of the Hbc Run for Canada. If you have time, don't miss Signal Hill. Here, the people of St. John's are the first to celebrate our country's birthday when the sun rises every July 1st. With so much to do in St. John's on Canada Day, the Hbc Run for Canada has you covered!
