Race Start location moved

The race site has changed… no longer using Cherry Beach, now at the entrance to Tommy Thompson Park (lower Leslie St. at Unwin Av., south of Lakeshore Blvd.)

The move gains us some efficiencies and more parking so we’re trying it this year.

This Half Marathon is timed to help your fall training…

1. You need Half Marathon and Marathon training, we have it at Toronto’s most scenic location in Tommy Thompson Park.

2. The event is on Saturday, September 17th, giving you a full month before the Scotiabank Waterfront Toronto Half and Full Marathon Oct. 16th.  Make the 10-Miler and Half a critical part of your training for Scotiabank Waterfront.   


Get your dibs in for a tech shirt and cool finisher medal.

I'm SO excited!
Flat and Fast
Flat is beautiful, fast is fun. And scenic… see Toronto’s shoreline and skyline, the island, a lagoon, bird sanctuaries. Ten miles is 16k so for those aiming for a half, it’s the perfect long run. For those aiming for a marathon, combine it with a warm-up run and cool-down run and you’ve just done your last long training run. SIGN UP!
What’s In It For You? WIIFY?
  • Your choice of running toque or unique race shirt (technical fabric)
  • Kingbird medal v.1Fantastic finisher medal –  Last year we featured a Monarch Butterfly on our medal. This year we feature another of the many beautiful creatures inhabiting Tommy Thompson Park, the Eastern Kingbird.  The bird portion of the medal will be polished silver metal. Start your 10-Miler Fauna collection this year or add to it… you NEED these in your medal collection!
  • Good food, fantastic venue and race courses, prizes for overall & age group winners

Help keep this parkland healthy and vibrant… donate to The Living City Foundation, our event charity.

And then it dawned on me…  Morning views from our park locations… pretty spectacular. Thanks to one of our finish line volunteers, Bill Haust, for the one silhouetting runners and Mark Spik, a water station manager, for the sunrise shot!
