Course Description

  • Please note that the park is NOT closed to the public. Be aware of your surroundings and other runners near you.

Timing: We will be using the Mylaps BIBTAG Timing system. With this technology your timing chip or “bibTag” is now placed on the back of your race bib. It must be correctly worn on race day for your race time to be accurately captured. Important Info:

  1. Do not remove the “bibTag” or foam spacer from your bib
  2. Do not fold your bib or excessively bend or twist the “bibTag”
  3. Wear your bib on your front. Do not wear on your back, side, leg or arm
  4. It’s “NO BIB = NO TIME!”. To read more about the Mylaps BIBTAG technology and Sportstats.

Time Limit: The time limit is 1 hour and 40 minutes for completing the 10k race before the finish line is dismantled

Bib Numbers: Your bib number must be worn on your front and visible along the entire route. Only athletes wearing a bib number will be allowed to cross the finish line and receive a medal.

Awards: Top three women overall and top 3 per age group (5 year age groups)

Finish Line Safety: Safety is our priority at all Toronto Women’s Run series events. For that reason, and in response to participant feedback, children will no longer be allowed to cross the finish line with their mother unless they are registered in the race. We have created this policy to ensure the safety of all participants, volunteers and fans. Allowing non-participants, including young children, to cross the finish line serves as a distraction to other finishers, poses a safety risk and disrupts our finish line operations. We know you want to celebrate this wonderful achievement of finishing the race with your children, but we ask you to do so only after you cross the finish line. Family and friends are encouraged to reunite with their athlete in the post-race area just beyond the finish line.

Age Limits: All children must be registered in the race and the minimum age for participation is 6 years of age.  Anyone under the age of 13 must be accompanied by a registered adult.
