Congratulations to all of our runners and walkers, and a huge thank you to our volunteers who made this year’s event one for the record books!

Through your generous fundraising efforts, we’ve raised an incredible $140,000 this year… and since the inception of the run in 1996, over $1 million dollars in donations. YOU ARE AMAZING!!

Race results are available from our friends at Sports Stats.

On behalf of the entire board of the Pride and Remembrance Association, we THANK YOU for your ongoing support.

Happy World Pride!!!!!

Are you ready? RACE DAY INFO

We’re one day away from the 19th annual Pride and Remembrance Run!!

Race Day information:
As always, the run starts from the corner of Church and Wellesley Streets in downtown Toronto at 10:00 am and will follow this route.

Runners should make their way to the Start / Finish Corral by 9:45am and join Michael DeCorte of Jock Yoga for a warm-up session.

New for 2014! Wave start:
To enable everyone to have the safest race possible, we will be implementing a WAVE START for this year’s Pride and Remembrance Run.

The Start / Finish Corral will have volunteers holding signs. Please line up in the Corral based on your expected finish time as follows:


Wave 1 – all runners finishing in under 20 minutes, and all runners finishing between 20 to 25 minutes will start at 10:00 am.

Wave 2 – all runners finishing between 25 to 30 minutes, over 30 minutes, and walkers will start at 10:06 am.

As well, having non-participants (including young children) join you to cross the finish line poses a safety risk and disrupts our finish line operations. Please celebrate with your family and friends in Barbara Hall Park during our After Party area just next to the 519 Community Centre.

After Party @ Barbara Hall Park
Come join us at Barbara Hall Park (formerly Cawthra Square beside the 519) for our after party and awards! The Hon. Kathleen Wynne will be speaking.
