Registration is now open for the GoodLife Fitness Toronto Marathon, a Toronto tradition since 1977. The Marathon is expected to draw upwards of 2,500 participants in a downhill course that is fast and scenic!
The marathon course is fast, downhill, and scenic. Starting at Mel Lastman Square in North York and finishing at Ontario Place, the marathon winds through many of the City’s great neighborhoods. This Toronto favorite is one of the fastest courses you will find anywhere and is a great qualifier for the Boston Marathon.
In addition to the marathon, there is also a half-marathon, 10K, 5K and marathon relay providing some great race options for runners looking to tackle all kinds of challenges.
The main charity partner of the GoodLife Fitness Toronto Marathon is the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation. Over the years, run or walk participants have raised more than $7.5 million for The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation!
Runners will receive a technical running shirt and bib with their registration.
As well as entertainment at each aid station, additional “Entertainment Stations” featuring a variety of music or cheering will be located along the course to help keep you motivated and get you to the finish line.
At the end of the race, runners will be able to refuel at a food tent at the finish line and indulge with massages provided by registered massage therapists and physiotherapists.\
