While many Toronto runners in December are layering up and turning to the treadmill, over 80 runners took to the streets and completed the challenge taking minimalism to another another. Fortunately, the weather was mild for December and hovered around 10 C throughout the day. Runner’s celebrated the holiday spirit on a 3km route throughout Toronto, finishing off their day at Hemingway’s.
On December 10th, clad in nothing but running shoes and Speedo bating suits, entrants will be raising money for the Toy and Games fund at the Toronto Hospital for Sick Children. Since 2005, the run has raised over $285,000 for SickKids Foundation. This year was a huge success, raising over $30,000 as of December 13th. Unique to the Toronto event, each runner is required to raise a minimum of $250, promising great success for the event.
Look like fun!? Be sure to register for next year’s event!
