I took part in this innovative run last year but regrettably cannot do so this year. Info for the run is below and you can check out the prizes they’ve been gathering on the event FaceBook site. Here a link to my blog post about the Railpath Community Run from last year titled A Tale of Three 10K’s .
Railpath Community Run 2013
Start: September 29 2013 08:30 -11:30 am
Info for the Railpath Community Run website:
To celebrate the West Toronto Railpath, 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.
Our tentative schedule of the day’s events are as follows:
- 8:30 – 9:00 – Support tents open / Racer information table open
- 9:00 – 9:15 – Kick Off
- 9:15 – 10:00 – Wave 1 (Competitive Runners)
- 10:00 – 10:30 – Wave 1 Prizes & Staging for Wave 2
- 10:05 – 10:20 – Post-Run Yoga by You Defined
- 10:30 – 11:15 – Wave 2 (Walkers & Casual Runners)
- 11:15 – 11:30 – Wave 2 Prizes & Close
We are planning on having lots of great prizes for our participants. Prizes will be award for top finishers and random draw prizes, so both competitive and fun run/walk participants are eligible.
This event was a huge hit last year and for a great cause so come out and participate !!!!
