Race Roster Spring Run Off
This run-off has been taking place in the winding roads of High Park for the past 36 years. It’s a fun opener to the spring racing season and a great pick for seasoned or newbie runners looking for a challenging course with some pretty spectacular scenery. If Mother Nature cooperates, the race date might even coincide with cherry blossom season in the park.
The 5k and 8k routes both loop over the paved, wide, traffic-free roads of High Park. The 5k starts on West Road, while the 8k starts near the pool on Colborne Lodge Dr. Both courses finish near the Bloor St entrance at the north end of the park. Runners in the 8k should expect to hit two significant hills and at a least a few downhills.
