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:

WaveStart

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.

HAVE A GREAT RACE – HAPPY WORLD PRIDE!
