Women Run Toronto

We know women love to set their pace. We are here to help you keep that up and achieve your goals.

The goal of the Toronto Women’s 416 Run Challenge is to log 416 kilometres between now and July 31, 2021. You’ll stay active and you’ll collect some awesome bling as well.

We’ve designed this virtual event to make it fun and challenging for anyone – newbies or experienced road warriors. For example, walk or run 15 km – 25 km each week, and you’ll finish up the challenge in 4 – 6 months. You want to stretch it out longer to keep up your motivation – that’s great too! Your pace is personal.

You can live, and participate, from anywhere in the world. Feel free to put in your kilometres outdoors or indoors, treadmill or trail. Running or walking.  In the city, the country, in Toronto or beyond.  It’s up to you.  You set your own pace and we’ll be here to support you with training tips and rewards.

416km. Bling. Coffee.

When you register, your 416 Run Challenge welcome kit will be sent straight to your home, jam-packed with really cool stuff including a 416 Run Challenge neck gaiter, delicious Pilot Coffee and a 416 Run Challenge mug to sip from, a $25 Asics e-card, and tons more surprises from our sponsors and supporters, many of whom are women owned and operated small businesses.

As part of your ongoing motivational rewards package, we’ve commissioned a uniquely designed four-piece Finisher Necklace. Each of the three Challenge charms will be sent to you as you complete each milestone of your Challenge. So lots to look forward to as the weeks and kilometres add up!
