Toronto Waterfront 10
The Toronto Waterfront 10 is a fast downtown dash put on by Canada Running Series. This race brings in elite runners from around the world and has a reputation for being well-organized, well-corralled, full of spirit and crowd support (look for live bands along the route)--and did we mention it's fast? The downhill point-to-point course is a great choice for first-timers or runners looking to shatter their previous PB.
The race starts at Yonge St and Castlefield Ave in midtown Toronto, and then follows a straight shot down Yonge Street all the way to the financial district. You’ll turn west on Richmond St W, south on Peter St, west on Front St, south on Bathurst St and finish up on Fort York Blvd. The finisher's chute leads to a post-race party site at Garrison Common Park.
