The Achilles St Patricks Day 5km – 12th March 2017

Trek and Run were supported during this event by; Salba Chia  Brooks Running & Helly Hansen Adam - Sunday morning began nice and easy with a later race start than usual for me. Traffic into Toronto from Hamilton flowed smoothly. Although I worried the Spadina exit might be backed up, as Spadina is part of the race route, there was no issue and parking on Front St only cost $12. I parked across from the Rogers Centre.

It had absolutely poured down with torrential rain during the day so I was all set for a blustery run but the sun made an appearance right on time to treat us to some beautiful views of the Solent. The course is a nice and simple straight dash up the promenade with two laps around the lifeboat station then back…
