We are currently promoting Joggin for the Noggin, it is put on by one of your members. Proceeds go to Sick Kids Hospital.

Any cool routes/ favourite areas to run in your city that you would like to recommend to other runners? Why do you like those?

We love running through the beaches and the Leslie Spit. We love this route/area because of the beautiful view of the city and it so close to home!

A couple of our favorite races are the Tannenbaum 10k and the Beaches Spring Sprint. They are fun fast races!
