There's a kind of magic in Toronto this time of year. You can feel it in the streets as the leaves start to change their colours and runners gear up for their last big run of the racing season. It's a magic that spreads throughout the city, covering even more ground than the PATH. With the coldest months of the year just around the corner, Torontonians will take to the streets this October to soak up the last warm rays of sun and celebrate the Six in all its glory.
We're excited to once again be partnering with Toronto’s own BlackToe Running to host a series of events that capture that magic feeling and inspire runners to crush their race goals. Kicking things off with a tempo run for all levels, we're also hosting an intimate discussion about the mental side of the sport with Alex Hutchinson, Outside Magazine's Sweat Science columnist and author of ENDURE: Mind, Body, and the Curiously Elastic Limits of Human Performance (you could even win a signed copy of his book!). And if you're not pounding the pavement at the STWM this year, you can help us make some noise at our lively cheer station at the 5K mark.
- October 12: Time to Tempo | BlackToe Running x Saucony
- October 16: An Evening with Alex Hutchinson
- October 21: STWM Cheer Station with BlackToe Running
So grab your gear, get your crew together, and take to the streets with Saucony and BlackToe to feel the magic that makes Toronto one of the most exciting places to run in the world.
