PR or BQ at the TO Marathon

Register now to run Goodlife Fitness Toronto Marathon’s fast, scenic and mostly downhill marathon.

If you’ve got your sights set on a big PR or BQ this year, then the Goodlife Fitness Toronto Marathon in Toronto, Ontario on May 1, 2016 should be on your race schedule. Featuring a fast, scenic and mostly downhill marathon course that drops 350 feet in elevation from start to finish, the Goodlife Fitness Toronto Marathon boasts one of the fastest marathon courses in Canada. It’s no wonder this race attracts thousands of runners each year—in 2015, close to 15% of the 1,359 marathon finishers qualified for the Boston Marathon.
 
Aside from fast and flat course—which, by the way, winds through some of the city’s best neighbourhoods, including North Toronto, Forest Hill, Corktown, St. Lawrence, Fort York and Humber Bay, making it a great opportunity to see the city on foot—the Goodlife Fitness Toronto Marathon offers everything you’d expect a big-city race, including a fun and energizing atmosphere; big, fancy marathon finishers’ medals; a sweet technical race shirt; and several race distances so all levels of runners and walkers can take part: a marathon, a half marathon run/walk, a 5K run/walk, relay events, and a 10K run, a new event distance added for this year.
 
The marathon, half marathon and relay start at Mel Lastman Square in North York; the 10K starts at Aylmer Road and Park Road, south of Rosedale Station; and the 5K starts at Ontario Place. All races and events finish at scenic Ontario Place – a great backdrop for your post-race photo ops.
 
The marathon expo takes place on Friday, April 29 from 12:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. and Saturday, April 30 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Enercare Centre, Exhibition Place. All participants receive a technical shirt, customized bib and finishers’ medal (though only marathon finishers receive the big, fancy medal). You can register online now until April 30, 2016 or sign up at the race expo.
