The Run

runners-2-400x400Evoking the nostalgia of your youth, the Famous Canadian Beer Run 5K takes runners on a meandering tour of Ontario Place’s east and west islands, passing by iconic structures including the Cinesphere and silo buildings. The scenic course is run on wide, paved paths and offers stunning views of the lake and city skyline. The route is closed to traffic and mostly flat, with a few short hills and a pedestrian bridge crossing. The run is split into waves of 500 runners, ensuring ample space along the course. 

Run registration includes: entry into post-run Craft Beer & Food Festival, 4 beer/beverage chips (good for two 8 oz. beers, or four 4 oz. beer samples), commemorative beer stein, run t-shirt, race kit filled with samples and a customized race bib.
