Choose to Run: TSC Toronto Waterfront Marathon

| September 15, 2023

Are you ready to lace up your running shoes, embrace the scenic beauty of Toronto’s waterfront, and make a meaningful difference in the lives of animals in need? The TSC Toronto Waterfront Marathon offers you the perfect opportunity to do just that. Whether you prefer the thrill of an in-person 5K run or the flexibility of a virtual marathon, this event allows you to run for a noble cause – supporting Toronto Humane Society’s lifesaving programs and services. 

In-Person 5K: Be Part of the Excitement

For those who crave the energy of a live event, the in-person 5K option on October 15th is the way to go. Imagine the exhilaration of running alongside fellow participants, cheered on by enthusiastic supporters lining the picturesque Toronto waterfront. This option allows you to not only challenge yourself physically but also be part of a vibrant community of like-minded individuals dedicated to making a difference. 

Virtual Marathon: Run at Your Own Pace

If your schedule or location makes it difficult to attend in person, the virtual marathon option is designed to accommodate your needs. You can choose when and where to run and spread out your running days between October 1st and October 31st, allowing for maximum flexibility. Whether you prefer the serenity of a local park or the convenience of your own neighbourhood, the virtual option ensures you can participate on your terms while still contributing to the cause.
