Toronto Challenge

Toronto Challenge

Are you ready for a challenge?  For 24 years, the Toronto Challenge, presented by MonsterMortgage.ca, has been bringing together participants from all ages and abilities to raise funds for non-profit organizations that are improving the quality of life for seniors in your community.

Whether you're a serious runner, spending time with your family, or simply enjoy physical activity, you can take part in a timed 5k run, 5k walk or 1k walk through downtown Toronto.  As a participant, you will receive a t-shirt, a chance to win prizes and be invited to the post-race ceremony in David Pecaut Square.  On Sunday June 14, take the Challenge with your friends and family!
