How about racing into 2013 with a 5K run and then celebrating with a post-race party with champagne and fireworks?
Starting at midnight, the run takes place in Toronto’s hip Liberty Village, where there is a combination of mostly roads, paths and laneways, plus the scenic Liberty Market Lane. Some running will be through parking lots, with some gravel sections but trail shoes are not required. The course is extremely well lit from street lights and runners get a great view of the city’s skyline.
The final party venue is still be finalized, but showers and facilities will be available so you can get ready for the party. There is no formal dress code – come smart, sporty, casual or even in a costume.
And if running’s not your thing, you can sign up for the party only.
Run ticket includes winter gloves, post-race food, swag bag, finisher’s medal and free glass of bubbly. Party ticket includes free drink, finger food, party favours and the chance to win some draw prizes. Beer and wine are available for purchase.
