Since either of our two race venues includes showers and change facilities, we have something to offer that NO OTHER race has ever offered.  If the idea of "just running" 5km does not intrigue you, or you are the type of athlete who takes 60-90 minutes just to warm up, here is something we will offer to 50 individuals, free of charge.   SEND us a box / bag (by mail, courier, taxi) or drop it off at Race Kit PickUp.  This package would contain some dry clothes and shoes (no valuables).  If we receive this bag before 5pm Saturday, Dec 31st, we can have it available for you when you arrive that evening...on foot....


That's right...maybe you and some friends want "one more long run" to cap the year, so consider if you are attending the party only and have a way back home via public transit or cab, RUN on over, clean up, and then party like there's no tomorrow...we just hope you aren't coming all the way from Ottawa, Buffalo or London.  For this special request please email david @ mynextrace . com


The venue for the pre and post Party is King West Fitness 171 East Liberty Street Toronto, ON M6K 3P6.

ALL run tickets as well as including your run include a free drink, finger foods, party favours and chances to win draw prizes. Party dress code....all over the map, you can dress up (formal), be sporty which will fit in or in a costume if need be, another chance to wear you recent Hallowe'en get up. Support the run by watching the start and finish which is right outside the Party venue. Food - Hot & Cold Snacks will be availalable for purchase. Beer and Wine is only $5, and a limited selection of spirits and mixable alcohol will be provided. Your 2nd or 3rd glass of bubbly is $8.
