Toronto Island Run
The Toronto Island Run is a late-summer tradition put on by the Longboat Roadrunners, one of the most historic running clubs in the city. This laidback 5k and 10k event (the oldest in Toronto) is located on Centre Island, just a short ferry ride from downtown. This event is fairly small and caps out around 1000 participants total. It’s notorious for bringing racers back year after year—keep an eye out for fellow runners proudly wearing t-shirts from past Island Runs.

Prevent Injury & Run Your Best
One of the biggest training mistakes runners make is leaving recovery to chance.
Running demands a lot from our bodies, if we’re not keeping up with maintenance, then it will eventually break down.
The best way to prevent injury while training for an event is with targeted mobility and strength work.
