Beat Beethoven Run

It’s never been a better time to Beat Beethoven! Due to the current circumstances we are unable to host a large running event in 2022, so this year we will be going virtual again. You have the entire month of June to beat Beethoven and at the same time, support the Kingston Symphony Association.

Participants can take to a racetrack of their choosing whether it be a hiking trail, a city street, or a treadmill and once again challenge themselves to beat Beethoven! For almost 30 years, thousands of participants have challenged themselves to finish an 8 km race or a 4 km fun run/walk through downtown Kingston before the Kingston Symphony has finished playing 50 minutes of Beethoven’s best music. For 2022, we will be holding Beat Beethoven virtually. As a bonus for completing the 8 km distance, you will also receive a Beat Beethoven medal. Children aged 10 years and under can also participate in a 1 km virtual run and receive a Beat Beethoven ribbon.
