That means getting upwards of 15,000 participants in the half and full marathons to start on University Avenue in a timely and orderly fashion…..no sweat...gulp :)
As in other International events of such proportions, a corral system will be utilized to assemble the throngs according to their self-estimated pace times. To accommodate such large numbers, the 600 metres stretch of University Ave. between Adelaide and Dundas, will be closed
BTW, all finishers of the Marathon, Half Marathon and 5 km. events, receive very cool medals (see image). The 2010 medals continue the event’s Collectors' Series, featuring Toronto landmarks runners pass by.
