Backs in Motion is CMCC’s annual 10km run and 5km run/walk. In its 35th year, Backs in Motion raises over $50,000 each year in support of chiropractic education, research and patient care at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College.

Backs in Motion brings together over 500 competitive and recreational participants of all ages. The course explores the beautiful East Don Parkland trail, a northerly, scenic stretch of the Don offering a chance to see the river and its valley unencumbered by rail lines and expressways.

Backs in Motion awards over 100 prizes to: the top three male/female overall finishers and the top three male /female finishers in each age category for the 5k and 10k run, In addition, participant and placement medals are awarded for kids.
