In-person racing will be back in Toronto on Sunday, Sept. 19 with Toronto’s Run X – a 5 km chip-timed time trial race on the grounds of Exhibition Place. This race is welcoming 500 runners looking to return to in-person racing. Runners will go off in seven waves of 75 people each hour and must sign up for specific time slots between 8 a.m and 1 p.m on race day.
“This event is a welcome back to racing for the running community of Toronto,” race organizer Jeff Chong says. “We knew the runners are eager to race, and this event is an opportunity to do so.”
The course is four laps of Exhibition’s Bandshell Park (1.2 km), a completely flat course with little to no elevation. Run X will be one of the first races back to in-person since the pandemic.
Race kit pick-up will be held at the Runners Shop on Bloor Street the week before the race.
