Nike Women's 15k Toronto
Note: The Nike Women's 15k in Toronto will not be happening in 2016. There is a chance that this event will return in 2017.
This 15k run on Toronto Island is one of the best Nike events you'll get to participate in. 15k of beautiful nature in the heart of the city. Although it's called the Nike Women's 15k, men are allowed to participate in this race. While regular participants must apply for an opportunity to run, there is a student discount program that automatically allows you to sign up for the race at a discounted rate.
Spectators are allowed but they must register early as well because even spectator tickets sell out quickly.
You can also train for the 15k with the Nike Race Companion app available on your mobile device.
Because this race is happening on the Toronto Islands your course packet will include a ticket on the Toronto Island ferry. It takes roughly twenty minutes to get to the islands and they're gorgeous. This will be one of the most scenic races in the city. Parking is available at the Harbourfront Centre by the lakeshore.
