Athletics Canada National Road Race Standards Badges

The Approved Event badge recognizes races that are safe, well-organized, and provide a positive participant experience. Events must provide evidence of an Emergency Plan, Medical Plan, Course Plan, and Administrative support.

The Competitive Race badge recognizes further that a race is technically sound and provides meaningful competition. A Competitive Race must be part of an Approved Event and provide an accurate course and legitimate results.

The Elite Race badge recognizes Competitive events with championship potential, and provide opportunities for elite performance. An Elite Race must also be a Competitive Race and must have a record eligible course and elite athlete support.

The Fun Race badge (available in 2017) recognizes races that build community, and promote and celebrate running. The badge will be awarded to events based on post-event analysis and participant surveys.
