2024 Chancellor's Challenge 5 km Run/Walk


Accept the Challenge and go the extra mile for students

Join us on Saturday, September 21, 2024, and participate in the fourth annual Chancellor's Challenge. As a champion of Ontario Tech students and education, Chancellor Mitch Frazer created the Chancellor’s Challenge – an annual five-kilometre run/walk to advance the mission of Ontario Tech while raising funds for students. The course winds along Ontario Tech's north campus, starting and finishing at Polonsky Commons. This is an inclusive, non-competitive, pet-friendly community event with no time limit.
