Toronto is getting a brand new 10k run this summer. Called the Toronto Waterfront 10, this new race evolved from the well-known Toronto Yonge Street 10k that usually took place in April of ever year. Now set to take place on Satuday June 25th 2016, this brand new race will showcase some of Toronto’s best running views.
The race will start at Queen and University and similar to the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon, will head down to lakeshore. The route will then take participants west before returning east along the water. Runners will be able to run along the scenic waterfront for most of the run.
Over 7000 people are expected to race and those who register can also help support any of the three featured charities: the Canadian Olympic Foundation, Second Harvest of Red Door family shelter by fundraising during their training.
On May 12th, the organizers of the #Waterfront10 in collaboration with the RunTOBeer group will be hosting a friendly beer training run that will be starting at the Amsterdamn BrewHouse and that will take runners on some of the actual course route from the Toronto Waterfront 10. The run is open to everyone and will feature 10k, 5k and 3k routes. Once the run complete, the participants will get an exclusive first look at the brand new finishers’ medal for the #Waterfront10. They will also be greeted with a pint of beer and have the chance to meet the pacers, representing the different run clubs in the city, who will be pacing the race on June 25th.
