Toronto's Beer-iest 5KM Fun Run
This ain’t no beer mile! At Toronto’s beer-iest 5-kilometre fun run the real party begins when you cross the finish line into the Craft Beer & Food Festival. Kick back with friends as you sample the finest Canadian craft brews, nosh on delicious food truck eats and enjoy live music all afternoon long.
Take in stunning views of the city and Lake Ontario as you take a tour of Ontario Place’s East and West Islands. This closed-to-traffic route is run on wide, paved paths and is mostly flat with a few short hills and a pedestrian bridge crossing. There is one water station on course. Cross the finish line and you’ll be bestowed with your very own Famous Canadian Beer Run stein, and 2 eight ounce beers to get you started at the Craft Beer & Food Festival.
Do the course at your own pace! Walkers, runners and athletes/non-athletes of all abilities are welcome! This event is NOT timed.
Five wave start times are limited to 500 participants each, to ensure that there is plenty of room on the course for you to take in the scenery. Choose your preferred wave start time when you register.
