Welcome to East York Toronto Runners! We are a fun, social group of athletes who enjoy training and racing together.
We regularly meet on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays, but also encourage members to post their own runs at other times if they’re looking for company. Most of our members are experienced runners, but we have a variety of levels of pace and distance. We welcome new runners (those who aren't yet up to 5km without resting) to check out our Beginner Runs on Monday evenings. Wednesday morning runs are generally 30 - 40 mins. long and Saturday runs are anywhere from 10-15+ km.
Keep in mind that each member has his/her own goals, training schedule and reasons for running. The group will often split up during the course of a run according to these goals and schedules. We hope that all members will be able to find someone to run with, but sometimes, people do end up running on their own. We don't believe in pushing people to hit paces or distances that they aren't ready for. There is no pressure to keep up with (or slow down for) anyone else. This Meetup is meant to provide a time and place to run that will motivate people to get out the door and onto the road. Work at your own level.
A few notes about our Meetups: We give a 5-minute grace period for latecomers before we begin our runs, so please be on time if you don’t want to miss us. If you aren't going to make the meetup, please do others the courtesy of changing your RSVP at least 30 minutes before the run. We generally meet at the end of the run for a coffee and chat.
Feel free to contact any of our organizers if you have questions. Unsolicited/inappropriate/abusive messages to the group or individual members will not be tolerated. You will be removed from the group and reported to meetup.com.
