This Sunday is the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon and the race weekend expo is in full swing. If you’re heading down to the Enercare Centre, be sure to check out all that the expo has to offer, notably, the official STWM 2019 race jackets. You know the Boston Marathon jacket that you coveted? The STWM jacket is just like that, except it’s about Toronto.
