Due to the current situation with COVID -19, Kingston United Soccer Club has decided, for 2021, to shift the annual June First Capital Tournament and Festivals to an early fall weekend in order to increase the chances of successfully holding the event.

The Conquer the Canal team and event organizers bring to you a virtual venture with the goal of keeping the community active and healthy. The experience is not a race but rather an individual endeavour with the central goal of promoting mental and physical well-being through exercise.
With the UNESCO World Heritage Site Rideau Canal as the backdrop, The Conquer The Canal Challenge has participants walk, run or cycle a virtual 204 km course from Ottawa to Kingston. Participants pay a fee, register on-line and then have access to The Challenge interactive website and The Challenge App.
The Conquer The Canal Challenge has three goals. First, The Challenge wants to encourage the greater public to enjoy a safe and healthy challenge. Second, The Challenge hopes to raise funds for Kingston United Soccer Club current programing and to assist families who may face financial barriers to participating in our programs. Finally, part of the funds raised will be donated to the Kingston Food Bank to help bridge the gap in food demand created due to the pandemic.
We are very appreciative and thankful to the organizers of this great event and for the support offered by The Conquer the Canal Challenge - Capital to Capital Challenge. We wish all those participating good luck!
