42 years and “running” – One Last Rodeo at Ontario Place!
Fun, Fitness, Fundraising with a mask??
TORONTO, ON, June 7, 2023 – The Toronto Corporate Run, presented by Niagara Cycling Tours, will return to Hotel X and Ontario Place, once again with the backdrop of Lake Ontario on Wednesday, June 7th, 2018 from 5:30 pm – 9:00 pm. What better way to enjoy an evening than competing for bragging rights with industry colleagues and all for great causes!
The 2023 edition will be mostly the same but slightly larger than last year with the biggest new look being our first ever Charity Challenge. 11 non profit organizations are now benefitting from the generosity of our loyal corporate audiences. 2022 Mega Team winners Indigo Books and Music, Universal Music Canada and Harris Shaeffer LLP are back to defend their Largest Team, Top Fundraising Team and Best Spirit Award trophies.
A cloud of smoke has now changed the outlook of the event according to Event Director Peter Donato, a 5-time Boston Marathon finisher:
“With the new weather advisory our team is of course monitoring the situation by the hour. We advise anyone participating (750 attendees) to turn their run into a walk, or cut back on pace, add some walking breaks or even wear a mask before and afterwards”
Attendees of course can just convert their Run/Walk tickets to the after party event which includes catered food by Goldie’s, Great Lakes Beer, beverages from Pepsi Canada and live music from the Yonge Originals.
