The run will take place from Sep 1 to Sep 30 and has two categories.
The Yellow Ribbon Run is back as a virtual run this year, with two categories, YR Inspire and YR Challenge, for the whole month of September.
For YR Inspire, participants have to complete at least one run, walk or hike of any distance in the shape of a Yellow Ribbon in a single activity. You may choose to submit as many Yellow Ribbon routes as you like.
For YR Challenge, participants can either complete a 60km route in the shape of a Yellow Ribbon in a single activity, or accumulate the distance with up to five walks, hikes or runs in the shape of a Yellow Ribbon.
The Yellow Ribbon signifies acceptance and forgiveness. When you run, walk or hike in the shape of a Yellow Ribbon, you join others in raising awareness for second chances.
Studies have shown that when an ex-offender stays crime-free for 60 months, or five years, their chances of re-offending is greatly reduced. The YR Challenge is capped to 60km and five submissions as it celebrates the number of months and years of a successful rehabilitation by an ex-offender.
Participants will get a Puma t-shirt, a sports pouch, an eco bag and a crochet medal made by inmates mailed to their address by the end of October.
Registration for the run cost $15 per person. Those who sign up in groups of five get a discounted rate of $13 per person.
Registration can be done here.
