Next Meetup

Tuesday is the new Friday - come join us for a run!
Calling all lapsed runners, runners looking to round out their week a bit, people who aren't quite sure they're up for running but are willing to give it a go: Introducing the Tuesday Harbourfront run! Now starting at 7PM to allow us to escape the heat a bit, and to allow you to deal with whatever your boss absolutely needs before Wednesday. The meeting place is Boxcar Social, beside the Natrel Pond (skating rink in the winter, pond in the summer). We will meet at 6:50PM at the base of the steps leading up to the patio, and we will leave at 7:00PM sharp. ** If you sign up for a run and can't make it, please remember to change your RSVP before 6:50 PM so the other runners aren't left waiting for you to show up. If you sign up, we *will* wait for you, so please don't assume you won't be missed. The route will follow the Martin Goodman Trail / William G Davis to the Cinesphere in the former Ontario Place grounds (the big white globe), and return. See photos attached to this event for route map and 7.75km turnaround point. What you need: It's hot out there folks, so consider a hat and/or sunglasses and paying extra attention to hydrating before the run. (There are also plenty of fountains along the route.) We can enjoy a coffee or a cold drink afterwards at Boxcar Social. Getting there: TTC is probably your best bet for getting to Boxcar Social. The nearest streetcar stop is Queen's Quay at Harbourfront; both the 509 and 510 streetcars stop there. If you prefer to drive, there is parking available at Harbourfront Centre for $16 starting at 6PM.

What we're about

This group is open to all who wish to make regular running, distance walking, and general fitness a part of their lifestyle. Many have goals, but lack support, resources, and knowledge how to get there. Together we can support one another.

You are welcome, whether beginner or experienced, casual or dedicated. Just tell us what your goal is.

These are fun runs and opportunities for us to discuss all aspects of healthy fitness. You can also post information about 'yoga for runners' classes, boot camps, nutritional information, whatever you're into.

Let's identify some really enjoyable routes. Toronto is a scenic city and running here can be transcendent (okay, maybe I'm a little utopian). There are beautiful valleys (the Don, the Humber), waterfront routes both east and west, as well as some trails up in the north I've heard great rumours about. Tell us where you love to run or walk!

No promotion of any profit-based business here. Any 'promoters' will be promptly and swiftly 'booted'.

And please note in order to join, it is necessary to have a profile photo that is clearly identifiable (at least a head shot). This is to ensure the comfort and safety of members needing to know who to approach in public locations where events are held. Accounts without a recognizable photo will be politely declined, but you are certainly welcome to rejoin with a new photo...we love new members!

So take a look at the runs posted, let us know if you're coming (so we can spot each other at the meetup), or post your own suggested runs if you would like us to join you. Let's see if we can create a network of popular routes across the city, year round, so that there's always somewhere for you to join others on any given day and get an enjoyable run or walk in.

I look forward to meeting you on the trails.

Good running and good health to you,

Stephen
