    This is how you party after a marathon. Hint: give all the runners a free Steam Whistle beer.


    On Sunday, October 18, many members of iRun Nation will be competing at the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon. What’s more, many of their loved ones will be watching and applauding and trying to keep themselves warm as their family and friends try and complete their race.


    In honour of this great achievement, and to share our thanks and appreciation of this community we know and love, iRun, Sportstats and Steam Whistle want to invite everyone out to swap stories and share a beer. If you have a race bib, the beer is on us. If you don’t, you’re still welcome to come on in and share the good vibes (and plenty of refreshing non-alcoholic alternatives are also on offer).

    Here’s the details:

    When: Sunday, October 18, 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

    Where: Steam Whistle Brewery, 255 Bremner Blvd., which is near the Rogers Centre

    What: Post-race party, with prizes and fun and an opportunity to swap stories, some of which will appear in the next issue of iRun

    Also: We get that other people outside of Toronto will be racing this weekend and we also know that not everyone wants to go to a bar after a race. That’s cool. We still want to party with you. Follow us on Twitter or Instagram and use #sneakerstories as the hash tag and tell us about your running adventures and you too will be eligible to win Ciele hats, Black Toe Running singlets and whatever other cool prizes we can find!

    This weekend, we’re celebrating runners and their loved ones. Because it’s so much easier reaching the finish line when you know you’re running with a whole team.
