Just wanted to say thanks for a great race experience today! I loved everything…the course was nice and scenic, the medal/necklace was unique and lovely, the chocolate and firefighters were a nice touch…and the race kit was one of the best I’ve received. You even managed to get the weather to cooperate. Well done, I look forward to doing the race again next year!

What a GREAT day!
I think that this has quickly become a premier event: lovely course, awesome organization, great perks (chocolate and burly men!), unique “medal…” Thank you so much for putting this together. It’s been a long time since Toronto had a women’s event of this calibre
(Brooks in the ’80’s?) and it was worth the wait!

The volunteers were far and away the best I have seen at a race. They were incredibly upbeat and encouraging… especially at a few crucial points for me!!!

It was wonderful, great course, perfect weather; great crowd; wonderful spirit; some fast girls. I thought it would get crowded but it didn’t. I think it is great to introduce more people to this gem of a park in our City.

LOVED the race shirt, great color and the slogan “Women Set The Pace™” is awesome! The medal is great too. You guys obviously put a lot of thought into these things and we appreciate it. Congratulations on the first Toronto Women’s race – we’ll be back!

A job well done! Perfect day for a race! Volunteers were wonderful! I love the necklace as a finisher’s medal! Could not stop for the chocolate at 19k! Great idea though! Feel free to add another Firefighters Water Table!!!!
LOL Thank you!

I am sure there will be countless accolades in the days to come for creating and hosting the TO Women’s Half and 5K. I had a great race and day! Running in this is a much different feeling than running in the bigger events attended by both genders. It was great to see all the ladies out there, all shapes, sizes and ages, getting it done. A very pretty/scenic run as well, and very well organized.

WELL DONE MY FRIENDS!!! Snap that was a good race – you really had every aspect organized to perfection! How the hell you figured out to run us past the firefighters 3 times….BRILLIANT!!!!

Just wanted to share how thrilled I was with the first Toronto Women’s 5K race on August 29th.
I’ve participated in about a dozen races over the last few years and this one was the best. So well organized: great website, clear signs at the site A great race poster to take photos beside, a good variety of post race food, and a well stocked race kit, and some great prizes for the draws. See you next year,

You can tell that this was a race organized by runners for runners – THANK YOU – you are making an impact on the Women’s running scene. The 5k was a great race, lots of fun, wonderfully organized and the volunteers are out of this world! See you next year.

My 8 year old daughter and I just ran the TO Womens 5K in Sunnybrook Park. We had a fabulous time! My daughter and I will be back next year! The race was inspiring and well-organized, thank-you!
