Sunset Shuffle

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), and a spectacular view from the ferry on the way home! 

Date: Thursday, August 11th, 2022

Distance: 6 km

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

Location: Centre Island Pavilion

Please note that, unfortunately, we will not be offering a post-race BBQ at this year’s event.

We will be following the current Ontario provincial guidelines around COVID-19.

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 for the route map:

Race begins promptly at 7 pm 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 4:40 pm, 5:20 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.
