Directions and Parking
The race starts and finishes on the Martin Goodman Trail by Lake Ontario at the foot of Lee Avenue. For map directions and for Uber use this address: 3 Alfresco Lawn, Toronto, ON M4L 1B8
Parking is available on local side streets and a couple of Green P lots around that are anywhere from 5-15 minutes walking distance to the start. Queen Street also has Free Parking until 1:00 pm which would also be anywhere from 5 – 30 minutes away depending on how close to Lee avenue you can get. Of course, parking is limited so we suggest you carpool if you can.

TTC – – our races start early so please check your individual TTC routes beforehand.

Of course, with a Summer run, the warm weather comes with it. The forecast is looking like it will warm up, so make sure you hydrate well on Saturday! We will have water and Nuun Hydration on course for you but as always is the case with a hot Summer day, we recommend you carry your own water as well.

Routes and Aid Station locations
For the Half Marathon runners, you will find water and Nuun at 2.5k, 5k, 7.5k, 10.2k, 13.5k, 16.3k and 18.5k. 10k runners will find them at 2.5k, 5k, 7.5k and 5k runners will find one at 2.5k
Race routes are available on our website –

If any further information needs to be relayed to you, we will contact you closer to Race Day. Until then, keep your eye on our website for updated Race Day Info.

Be sure to stick around and visit all of our partners and sponsors on race day. As usual, we will have some random draw prizes to be announced during the awards. On that note, I’d like to thank the following partners who help make this, and all of our events a great success:
