Railpath Community Run

"To celebrate this space, and promote health within our communities we’ll be hosting the 2nd Annual Community Run on September 29th, 2013 on the West Toronto Railpath. Our charitable partner for the event is The Stop Community Food Centre.

This event has a unique format that differentiates it from other local running events. Instead of a set distance (such as 5km), this is a timed lap-based event. In 45 minutes, participants will complete as many laps of the 2.1 km stretch as possible.

This is great to practice your speed-work as a competitive runner, or not be overwhelmed by needing to complete a big distance as a new runner or casual walker. There is something for everyone, and you decide what that is for you! Registration is available online here."
