I’m running the @RunCRS Toronto Yonge Street 10K #TYS10K #RunWithMe


A few months ago I was having a conversation with Laurie McCann about wanting to run the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon and apply to be one of their ambassadors.  She had said that it was a little early for that race and had suggested the Toronto Yonge Street 10k.  I looked into this race and was right away intrigued by the course!


They have described this as “Canada’s EASIEST and one of the fastest downhill 10k’s, the course runs right down the middle of Canada’s most famous street—Yonge Street!”


ok so I got a little silly with the pen tool but check out the down hill drop!

I mapped out this run on my Garmin Connect (feel free to add me if you’re also a Garmin runner).   The elevation starts at 544′ and drops to 258′ by the end that’s a drop of 286′.  What a perfect race for those of you just starting out on 10k’s or those of you looking for a 10k pb!  You just can’t go wrong here folks!

There is tons of great training help on their website including a training calendar to help guide your miles each week as well as 2 training runs you can sign up for.  One of the training runs is a beer run at Amsterdam BrewHouse!!!  IN the words of Homer Simpson ” mmmm beeeer” lol.  As well, for some extra motivation, tips, advice and virtual high fives check out the Digital Champions a group of 10 enthusiastic and dedicated runners, including myself, sharing our training stories, supporting you the runners and promoting Toronto’s Premier Spring Road Race!  For the social media types the official hashtag is #TYS10k so remember to use it in your posts and when searching for other people posts on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.
