Sunset Shuffle

Important update: Sunset Shuffle is cancelled for 2021

Due to the evolving situation regarding COVID-19, we made the difficult decision to CANCEL the 2021 Sunset Shuffle. Our Executive Board, with input and support from the Race Committee, has continued to follow the evolving recommendations from public health officials. Ultimately, the final decision was based on the need to do our part to help keep our participants, volunteers, club members, and the greater community safe.

We trust that you, our valued participants, understand and support this decision. We look forward to seeing everyone in person at the 2022 Sunset Shuffle!

Thank You, The Longboat Roadrunners

Toronto’s Best Kept Secret

When Get Out There magazine highlighted four of Canada’s most unique races, the Sunset Shuffle was one of their choices: A scenic sunset run on the Toronto Island with a casual, laid-back vibe (although expect the race to be flat and fast), a free post-race BBQ, and a spectacular view from the ferry on the way home! 

Date: To Be Confirmed (but probably Thursday, August 11th, 2022)

Distance: 6km

Time: 7pm start (give yourself enough time to catch the ferry and get to the start line!)

Location: Centre Island Pavilion

The Sunset Shuffle has been cancelled for 2021. Registrations are closed.

As was the case in 2019, we will be starting and finishing on Centre Island in 2022. Registration and start/finish will take place at the Centre Island Pavilion.

The course starts on Lakeshore Avenue, just south of the Centre Island Pavilion, and follows a counter-clockwise route around Centre Island. There will be 2 loops, with the finish just off Lakeshore Avenue near the Pavilion. Please see link:

Race begins promptly at 7 p.m. on Thursday, August 11th, 2022 (That’s the plan). To arrive at the Centre Island Pavilion on time, please take the Centre Island Ferry. The Ferry leaves the City side at 5:00 pm, 5:30 pm and 6:00 pm. Please note that the Pavilion is 700 metres (10 minute walk) from the Centre Island Ferry Docks, so plan accordingly.
