Join us for our 4TH Annual Labour Day Half Weekend.

This year we kick off the weekend on Friday night with a little Karaoke at Gladstone Hotel. Y'know, just to warm up our lungs for Sunday. On Saturday afternoon we hit the back patio of Cold Tea for some tunes, beers, food, and vibes. Sunday we hit the streets at 11AM for the Half Marathon and 10K option. No it's not a race, though we do expect you to run fast!! Later in the day we take to the CNE for some food and rides. Then on Monday, it's ISLAND VIBES all day with a beach party on Wards Island Beach.

It's important you all know the route. You can view it HERE. The 10K option will depart from our Flow Water station at Dufferin and Eglington. Bike Support will also have water, but if it's a particularly hot day, you may want to bring a bottle with you.

If you have any questions, please send us an email.

All times and locations are listed below. Please confirm your interest in attending in the form that follows.

GENERAL INFO


We meet EVERY Tuesday and Saturday at the Gladstone Hotel. We run RAIN OR SHINE, 52 weeks a year. Bring a friend or come solo and make some new ones! No need to sign up or register, JUST SHOW UP! 

Our Tuesday run takes place at 7:45 PM, and is open to all runners. We offer two distances each week. You must be able to run 10K in under 1 hour in order to run the long route. We usually meet in the Melody Bar, or Ballroom.

Our Saturday WOMEN'S run takes place at 8:45 AM, and is open to any woman capable of running 10K in under 1 hour. As the focus of this run is women's running, we ask that men refrain from joining. We usually meet in the Gallery upstairs.

We offer a bag drop at each run. We kindly ask that anything you bring into the space, you take with you. WE DO NOT HAVE A LOST & FOUND, OR A MAID.

PDRR STARTING FROM SCRATCH

Parkdale Roadrunners began offering a monthly beginners run called STARTING FROM SCRATCH to give runners of all levels - and those recovering from injury - a shorter distance with all the flavour of a regular PDRR run. 

We stick together for between 2-3KM in the ‘hood and we take it easy, employing a run/walk method of 10 mins running / 1 minute walking. No one is left behind and we all get together at the end for high-fives and some running knowledge from a Parkdale Roadrunner with a special area of expertise (nutrition, training, footwear, physiotherapy and massage therapy, etc.) 

Stay tuned to our social channels to see when the next STARTING FROM SCRATCH RUN is coming up.
