Beat Beethoven 2021: The Virtual Challenge
It has never been a better time to Beat Beethoven. For the past 25 years, thousands of participants have challenged themselves to finish an 8 km race or a 4 km walk through downtown Kingston before the Kingston Symphony has finished playing 50 minutes of Beethoven’s best music. This year we’re doing things a little differently. In June 2021 the Kingston Symphony Association launches its first virtual race – Beat Beethoven: The Virtual Challenge – in celebration of 25 years of this unique community event. Participants can take to a racetrack of their choosing whether it is a hiking trail, a city street, or a treadmill and once again challenge themselves to beat Beethoven in support of the Kingston Symphony.

For the entire month of June, register to run (or walk) your own route of either 8 km, 4 km or both, and you will receive a Beat Beethoven t-shirt. As a bonus for completing the 8 km distance, you will also receive a new Beat Beethoven medal! Children 
age 10 years and under can also participate in a 1 km virtual run and receive a Beat Beethoven ribbon.

Have fun with it and explore our community at the same time! Walk your dog for 4 km or go on an 8 km hike with your family on your favourite trail! Get your kids (10 and under for 1 km) to run down the street and back with their friends and see who’s the fastest! Any route you want and any activity on your feet counts during this year’s virtual Beat Beethoven event.

Online registration is now open at
