Here is this year's COOL Finisher's Medal:


We are excited to continue with Toronto's most fun New Year's Eve event!

Try something different this New Year's Eve. Ring in the New Year with a 5K run on the stroke of midnight and then celebrate 2017 with a post race party!  And if you don't want to run you can also just buy a party ticket!

SIXTH YEAR! And it is going to be even better!

PLUS all participants (runners and also just partiers) receive a great swag bag, beer, CIDER (new) and champagne (one each) and post race food. 

Your 2017 running and fitness resolution just became more clear!



It was a fun night! I had no expectations for the evening above having a chilly midnight run but it turned out to be a pretty cool time. The route was clearly marked and there were many event staff on site to ensure no one got lost. A water station at the mid point might have been a nice touch. 

The food after was great. Lots of pizza, salad and snacks for everyone! I even won a beer on the dance floor. I would do this run again!   Carol  2016


What a way to ring in the New Year! 

I was nervous about doing this run because I thought I might get lost or be way too slow but that wasn't the case at all. The route was well marked and people of all fitness levels were running. 

The organizers and volunteers were great, they worked so hard and seemed to be having a great time. 

It was really nice crowed of people and I'm looking forward to beating my time next year. - 2016 Attendee  (L.J.)


This is a truly unique and enjoyable way to start the New Year! The Race is fun, well organized, and the food and drink afterwards is amazing. No stale bagels at this event!  The organizing team is super as well, quick to respond to questions, great to deal with, and just plain awesome.  Thanks! - 2014 Attendee
