Beat Beethoven


For the last 22 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. Mark your calendar for this year's event, which will be held on Sunday, June 3, 2018.

The 8 km and 4 km event will start at 10:30 a.m. at Confederation Park.

The 1 km kids race will start at 9:45 a.m. at Confederation Park.
