Toronto 10 Miler Marathon

 

Logo

The Toronto 10-Miler takes place against the stunning backdrop of Toronto's Urban Wilderness: Tommy Thompson Park. The park offers exceptional views of Toronto's waterfront, wildflower meadows, cottonwood forests and coastal wetlands. What could be more invigorating and inspiring than running through a natural sanctuary?

Tommy Thompson Park's flat terrain is ideal for running, and the Toronto 10-Miler is wonderful as a stand-alone event or as preparation for half or full marathons such as the Toronto Waterfront Marathon.

In addition to the great physical and health benefits of the run itself, by participating in the Toronto 10-Miler you are helping the park too! Proceeds from the Toronto 10-Miler will go towards The Living City Foundation which supports Tommy Thompson Park; your contributions will directly support habitat enhancement/ creation projects at the park and help ensure that this natural treasure continues to thrive.
