Toronto Runs You Might Like - December

Toronto Runs You Might Like - December

December runs in and around Toronto pretty much stay on the road. Can you blame organizers? Who knows what kind of weather we'll have (but kinda hoping it's a white Christmas this year...)

Santa Shuffle

Date: December 2, 2017
Distance: 5k

Every year we're shufflin' (okay, sorry - that was a silly reference!) The annual Santa Shuffle occurs across Canada in support of the Salvation Army! There's quite a few GTA locations that you can participate in if you're not down town, so get on it!

Tannenbaum 10k

Date: December 3, 2017
Distance: 10k

The Tannenbaum 10k is a fun, flat, fast race down Toronto's beach boardwalk in the east end of the city. You don't have to wear a Christmas tree on your running jacket, but it's so much more fun when you do!

Santa Pur-Suit

Date: December 9, 2017
Distance: 1k, 3k, 5k

Kitchener-Waterloo's Santa Pur-suit is the KW region's annual Santa Claus race. You get a Santa suit you can take home, and you get to run through KW's prettiest streets and laneways. Win!

Santa 5k Burlington

Date: December 9, 2017
Distance: 5k 

Southwest of Toronto, Burlington hosts their annual Santa 5k a few weeks after Hamilton's. So if you miss one, there's always another opportunity! 

Boxing Day 10 and 4-Miler

Date: December 26, 2017
Distance: 5k, 15k

Hamilton's racing community has been lacing up the day after Christmas for a fun, fast 5k or 15k for years and years! No time like the present to work off that Christmas ham or turkey.

Resolution Run Toronto

Date: December 30, 2017
Distance: 5k 

What's your Resolution, Toronto? If it's to run more, there's no better way to start than by hitting the Resolution Run, an annual nation-wide 5k race that promotes health and wellness. 

Toronto Midnite Run and Party

Dust off the banana costume and ring in the new year with a chilly night run through downtown Toronto.
