An annual run to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice for serving our country through the Armed Forces. Whether you're a reservist, enlisted, a family member, friend, or just someone who appreciates the hard work it takes - both physically and mentally - to put one's life at risk for the sake of freedom, this annual race in the Kitchener-Waterloo area is a great way to honour our soliders.

Best way to kick off Chrismas season is this 5k run through the streets of downtown Toronto (practically all downhill, I might add) before the annual Santa Claus Parade. Wear your jingliest hat, your favourite mits, and don't forget to get your mug of hot cocoa at the finish line.
