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 – https://www.ttc.ca/Routes/index.jsp – 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.
