Come run with us!

Drop-in for a casual trail run at the Evergreen Brick Works led by one of our staff members. Perfect for members with some running experience, we'll run an average distance of 5km-8km, with a focus on fun over speed. It's a no-drop run, so no runner gets left behind.

Meeting Spot: Join the group between the cafe and the main open market building by the "Cayuga" sculpture bench.

Additionally if you cycle, The Brickworks is accessible via the Don Valley trails in the east and The Beltline from the west. Our run leader will be your guide but note, part of The Beltline is inaccessible and under construction at Chorley Park. The City of Toronto is improving this park and its access; completion is slated for summer 2018. Paths are still accessible and the detour is through the Brickworks for walkers, runners, and cyclists. Remember to courteously share the paths.
