The Shakeout Podcast: Why Toronto is a Great Running City

For the first feature in a series on great Canadian running cities, we explore the Big Smoke with the voice of Toronto.

What makes a city runnable? 

Is there a race for every season? A club for the speed demons, the rookies, and beer drinkers alike? Clean air and access to safe trails? Or, ready access to water fountains and public washrooms for regular and irregular pit-stops?



On this week’s episode of The Shakeout we bring you the first in a series of episodes featuring the great Canadian running cities and this week we take you on a tour of Toronto with CBC Metro Morning host, proud Torontonian and runner Matt Galloway. For Galloway, who spends most of his time talking, running provides a way to explore his city in silence and simply to observe. 

We would like to thank the Ontario Media Development Corporation for their contributions to this podcast.
