Bag Storage:

We do NOT have a secure bag store process.

  • MEC staff and volunteers are NOT responsible for any damaged, lost or stolen items
  • MEC staff and volunteers will NOT be available to hold any of your personal items

Safety Considerations:

The route is marshalled by MEC staff and volunteers, so please follow their instructions.

This path is open to the public, so keep to your right on the trail to allow cyclists and other path users to pass you. Check before overtaking another runner.

Running strollers are limited to the 5K.  Please start at the rear of the 5K heat as to not impede other runners.  Due to space, only single child strollers are permitted.


Help us keep our races green by bringing your own water bottle. (Compostable cups and on-site recycling and composting will also be provided.)

All runners start at Coronation Park.  5K participants run 2.5km along the Martin Goodman Trail (MGT) and then return to the start area.  10K participants run 5km out on MGT and the return to the start area.  15K participants run 5km along the MGT and return to the start area, where 10 meters in front of the starting arch there will be a turning point (pylon with marshall) where you’ll loop and head back out for a 2.5km loop. The 15K completes the 10K and 5K courses. 

5K = 2.5km out and back.

10K = 5km out and back.

15K = 5km out and back plus 2.5km out and back.




Combines both of the above courses.

We’ll have live unofficial race results within one hour of runners crossing the finish line at the results station. Official standings will be posted on the Speed River Timing site as well as this page within two business days of the event. Be sure to check back!

We’ll be giving out medals to the top three male and female finishers in each distance category (no age categories awards).

Want to see last year’s results to scope out how fast the course is? They’re on Speed River Timing.


All water stations will be equipped with MEC's electrolyte partner, nuun hydration. nuun is high in electrolytes, yet low in sugar to keep you optimally hydrated throughout the race.


We’re having a contest to see who’s the most pumped and ready to go for our races. There are prizes for 1st and 2nd best entry, for each event. You just have to gear up, snap a photo, and show us your stuff. Extra points for creativity and MEC gear.
