For more than 70 years, Heart & Stroke has led the fight against heart disease and stroke by funding lifesaving research. Our work has saved thousands of lives and improved the lives of millions of others. You’ll probably run into someone today who is alive and well thanks to the countless people in Canada who have supported our cause. By taking part in the Dead Cold Run, you’ll help us to continue to save lives and give more precious moments to people living with heart disease or stroke. Together we can beat heart disease, beat stroke, and beat as one.


True winter has actually set in (it’s been a while!).   We want to ensure the safety of our athletes – AND our volunteers.   While athletes can dress for the weather, and stay warm through racing – volunteers stand still!  We have set out the following as a guideline.

  • At temperatures of -20C (without the wind-chill), the events may be run at the Race Committee’s discretion, under a modified format (such as a shortened course or a modified start time). The Race Committee will consider the temperature trends, wind chill factors, and track conditions expected during the event before making their decision.
  • At temperatures below -25C, the events will be cancelled, or may be run WITHOUT volunteer support.
  • At any air temperature, any difficult weather conditions such as strong winds, high air humidity, heavy snow, or icy track conditions will result in the Race Committee consulting with the leaders of the participating teams to modify, postpone or cancel the event.
  • A decision to cancel may be made prior to race day based on the forecast or snow conditions, or it may be made on race day based on current weather conditions and the forecast. Event updates and/or the final decision will be posted on our website and/or posted on the facebook page.  We will do our best to notify participants via email as well.
