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.

Race Route









All races start at Bestview Park.

  • 10K participants run south along the Bestview path to the main East Don Parkland path to a turnaround south of Alamosa Park and the tennis courts.  Once participants turn around, heading north you will follow the East Don path almost to Leslie. Here you will turn around and go back to the Bestview side path and right on that to the finish. 
  • 5K runners will turn around south of Cummer overpass and follow the same route back to the finish as the 10K.


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