The Runner's Academy presents the first ever Toronto Run Summit!
There is so much more to being a runner than following a training plan and finishing a run. The running world is an evolving mix of technology, performance, community, and stories. Join us on January 14th as we explore what it means to be a runner and perform your best.
WHAT: Gathering of Toronto runners for a series of panel discussions on the theme of “The Future of Running”. Panel discussions will include:
· The Run Community
· Mental Health + Performance
Join us for a panel discussion and social 5k run, followed by food and drinks served up by our friends at The Food Runners & Great Lakes Brewery. This event is for all levels and abilities; come for a couple of presentations or stay for the whole session!
WHERE: Nike+ Run Club Loft (548 Richmond Street West)
TICKETS: $20.00 minimum donation. Proceeds go to CameronHelps.
