The B&O Yorkville Run is a premier, boutique, 5K race that unites local runners and businesses to raise funds for local charities. The run provides a luxurious experience to its 1,000 participants — from its high-end race kit, to its customized finishers medals and après-run hors d’oeuvres served by white-gloved waiters, courtesy of Yorkville restaurants. Together with support from local businesses we fundraise significant amounts for local charities. Over the past 7 consecutive years, we have raised over $800,000 for charities including YWCA Women’s Shelters, Mount Sinai Hospital, Prostate Cancer Canada, Jesse Ketchum Public School, Victim Services Toronto, Wellspring, Canadian Cancer Society and Golden Rescue. In 2017 we are partnering with over 25 local charities.
The run was named Canada’s fastest 5K road race for six consecutive years, and has attracted the world’s top elites. Athletics Canada has designated the race the New Balance Canadian 5km Road Race Championship, which takes place directly before the Yorkville Run.
Once again, the Bloor-Yorkville BIA is proud to be a Community Partner of the 8th Annual B&O Yorkville Run, which will take place on Sunday, September 10, 2017 at 9:45 AM.
