8:00 a.m. Long Run – Toronto Marathon Course Routes

That’s right! We need to change the time this week to make sure that we see our Toronto marathoners and half marathoners at different times. Sorry to the athletes running Mississauga:( We’ll eagerly await to see your results on our Google machines.

We have two routes to choose from.

*I won’t be at the West End Y as I need I’ll nursing some shin splinting while riding my bike around the course so please please reply to this message to inform other Longboaters if you will be attending the long run and which version of the route you will do.*

Here’s the first route. The good places to see the race are Davenport and Walmer, Yonge and Alymer, Church and Wellington and the finish.
