The Fédération québécoise d’athlétisme does not recommend wearing headphones during the race. If you wish to run with music, you must be able to hear outside sounds such as a runner asking you to yield or a volunteer giving you instructions. This is for your safety and that of other participants and volunteers. Due to the complexity of the course, its stairs, and narrow corridors, strollers will not be allowed to access the event and run the 5km.


There are two very important rules regarding stairs: the use of mechanical escalators is prohibited, and no steps should be taken up and down in pairs.

Locker Room

Locker rooms will be available at the starting point at Carrefour Industrielle Alliance with 120 spaces offered on a first-come, first-served basis, as well as at the arrival point at Complexe Desjardins local #118 located near the security office at your entrance via Guy Favreau. If you leave your gear at the start, you must retrieve it at the same location before 10:45 am upon presentation of your coupon. The cost to use the locker service is $2 payable on-site in cash or by bank transfer. For those who need to return to the start, take the Place des Arts metro towards Peel and pass through the Cours Mont-Royal to return to the food court at Carrefour Industrielle Alliance. Otherwise, there is the option to walk 900m straight down Sainte-Catherine Street from outside.

Please note that we are not responsible for losses and thefts if you decide to leave your belongings there.

Please note that the starting and finishing points are not at the same locations. The start of the 5KM is at Carrefour Industrielle Alliance, the start of the 1km is at Palais des Congrès, but the finish is common at Complexe Desjardins. Plan to purchase a metro ticket in advance or keep a credit card with you during your run to pay for your metro ticket for the return via Place des Arts to Peel.

One (1) water station will be available on the route at 3km at the World Trade Center near the Berlin Wall, as well as a snack and a small glass of water at the finish line.

PATH – Toronto’s Downtown Pedestrian Walkway

Toronto’s first underground path dates back to 1900 when the T Eaton Co. company connected its main store at 178 Yonge St. to its annex through tunnels. By 1917, five tunnels were already present in downtown. The opening of Union Station in 1927 led to the construction of an underground tunnel to connect it to the Royal York Hotel (now known as the Fairmont Royal York).

The true rise of PATH began in the 1970s with the construction of a tunnel connecting the Richmond-Adelaide and Sheraton centers. In 1987, the city council adopted the recommendation that the city would become the coordinating agency of PATH and would pay the overall costs of the system to design a signaling program.

In 1988, the design firms Gottschalk, Ash International, and Keith Muller Ltd. were commissioned by the City of Toronto to implement the design concept for PATH. The name and logo of PATH are registered with the City of Toronto, which coordinates and facilitates directional signage, maps, and identity markers throughout the system.

In the 1990s, signage for PATH was developed to provide pedestrians with better ease of use and functionality. The signage improves the visibility and identity of PATH, thereby increasing its usage, attracting more people to downtown Toronto, and attracting more businesses.

In 2016-2017, the City of Toronto and the Toronto Financial District BIA engaged Steer Davies Gleave to develop a new PATH signage system. Extensive public consultations, discussions with property managers, and review by the PATH Partnership Group led to the new PATH signage installed throughout the system in spring 2018.
