The Tannenbaum 10K (named after the tree of course) is a flat fast and very festive race in the heart of Toronto’s Beach neigbourhood. Come run with Santa and his helpers along the Martin Goodman Trail. This year’s event is shaping up to be Toronto’s most enjoyable 10K event of … MORE

    Things to love about this race, organized by a local running club:
    – race kit included a toque, sample snacks and a full-size package of Werther’s Chcocolate Crunch caramels
    – lots of free parking along Queen Street until noon
    – indoor washrooms
    – indoor bag check
    – lots and lots of volunteers
    – pacer elves for every few minutes, e.g. 52, 55, 57, 60, etc.
    – timing mat at the halfway mark to record your split times
    – flat course (my Garmin showed 0 metres elevation gain)
    – lots of post-race food including water, bananas, Clif bars, Pita Break rounds, and gingerbread scones from Cobb’s Bakery

    New this year was a kids’ 1k race with little finishers medals, half the size of the 10k medal.

    (Note: not the fault of the club, but I downgraded the “scenery” rating this year because of major construction along the route. Fences, barriers and construction debris is just not scenic.)

    I can see why this race sells out so quickly!

    The race kit was fabulous and included a sturdy sling bag instead of the usual tech shirt, Brooks shoelaces, a full-size Blistex sample, a few magazines and food samples.

    Parking was ample and free along Queen Street (a mere 500 metres from the start line), there was an indoor waiting area and indoor bathrooms, the bag check was also indoors, the course was flat and fast, there were many pacers, and stars like Olympian Krista DuChene and Canadian Masters Predrag Mladenovic participated. The medal is a decent size and a nice design. The volunteers were wonderful and there were many, many random draw prizes (hats, toques, gloves, sunglasses, gift certificates, running shoes!). The after-race food included chocolate milk, coffee, David’s Tea, bananas, cookies, Pita Break rounds, and iced scones from Cob’s bakery.

    The event felt professionally managed and results were available almost immediately.

    Well done! I will definitely sign up again next year.

    (Note: no official race photographer. If you want pictures, remember to bring your camera.)
