B&O Yorkville 5K
The Bang & Olufsen Yorkville 5k is one of Toronto's top 5k races and brings out elite racers and running enthusiasts alike each September. A fast, flat course in Yorkville, plenty of fancy draw prizes and a high-quality race kit (fundraisers might even find some Bang & Olufsen headphones in there) are just a few of the perks of this boutique race. In 2014, the B&O 5k was selected by Athletics Canada to host the inaugural Canadian 5k Road Race Championships, which were held separately from the general 5k.
From the race site at Jesse Ketchum Public School in Yorkville, the 5k heads southbound on Bay Street to Dundas Street West. From there the course jogs west on Dundas Street West, north on University Ave around Queen's Park up to Davenport Rd, and finishes on Davenport near Berryman St.
