First time running this race. I have to say I really enjoy running in Sunnybrook I get my best times there!
Had great prizes for those who placed in their age group (I received a 25$ running room card...thou you can't really buy much with that lol)
Loved the shirt it was a nice color blue :)
I would do this race again :)
Okay but . . .
Ran the 5k in 2013.
Pros: Course is reasonably scenic, well marked and reasonably flat. Chip timed.
Cons: While the course is flat, let's face it: you are probably not going to PB in mid-July, even at 8AM. So, what do you get for your $35-$40? A nice course, chip timing, a watermelon slice, half a banana and the ugliest white socks imaginable. Not a particularly good value.
Bottom Line: It's an okay race, but it is kind of hard to justify the price when MEC is charging $15-$20 for a very similar experience. If the sponsoring club is wants to continue to charge $40 for a 5k, they need to do better.
Great race, amazing community feel for a Toronto run. Best race food ever for a hot day - especially love the watermelon & pretzels!
Swag this year was free socks and/or waterbottles.
Only complaint - the large parking lot just past the washrooms should have been marked off with pylons to help fit more cars in the lot! But we are runners so if we have to go up to the next lot it's not that big of a deal is it? ;)
Great Local race.
In beautiful Sunnybrook park.
Wonderful organization, we look forward to it this year.
a Must do in July.
