RAIN OR SHINE / ON-TIME / NO ONE LEFT BEHIND
That’s about all you need to know about running with us. Below are the most common questions we hear.
WHEN DO YOU RUN?
We run EVERY Tuesday at 8PM, and Saturday at 9AM.
WHERE DO YOU MEET?
Capital Espresso 1349 Queen St. W., Parkdale
DO YOU HAVE BAG CHECK?
DO YOU HAVE A CHANGING AREA?
DOES IT COST ANYTHING?
CAN ANYONE COME?
For sure! Saturdays are just for the ladies though.
HOW FAST DO YOU GUYS RUN?
Our back of the pack runs at approximately 6:30/km. The front of the pack can reach sub 4:00/km.
WHERE CAN I FIND THE ROUTES?
Routes are posted 1-2 days before each run and can be found on the homepage: parkdaleroadrunners.com. We encourage all runners to familiarize themselves with the route BEFORE coming to the run.
WHAT IF I'M A BEGINNER?
We recommend that you be able to run 5km in under 35 minutes before joining us on a Tuesday or Saturday ladies run. We also host a monthly beginners run that is a run/walk group run under 3km, (run/walk = run for a period of time and do a short walk recovery.) If you aren't there yet, keep at it, and join us when you are.
SHOULD I LISTEN TO MUSIC?
We encourage you not to. It's a social run. Engage the person next to you and have some fun. Trust us, you'll enjoy the run even more. But also, it's a safety thing. If you're groovin' to music, how are you going to hear us yell "CAR!"
ARE DOGS ALLOWED?
Well-behaved dogs are. Sometimes dogs don’t understand how to run with a large group and it can be dangerous for them and the humans around them. If you bring a dog, please leave the dog outside, or wait until we exit to join the group.
If you have any other questions, please contact us.
