The Spring Run Off (SRO) is Toronto’s oldest continuously-held road race. 42 years ago, the Etobicoke Huskies track club started the SRO as a fundraiser. Now organized by the Canada Running Series, the 5km and 8km courses draw thousands of runners to test themselves on the hills of High Park.
Olympians, world record holders, and masses of Canadian runners turn up for one of the most challenging road races in the country. In this episode we chat with journalist Alex Hutchinson, professional runner Dayna Pidhoresky, and Spring Run Off co-founder Dave Reid.
