    The good:
    – fast race kit pick-up
    – kit contained two full-size Neutrogena sunscreen samples
    – nice looking tech shirt
    – free parking at finish line
    – frequent shuttles to start line ($5)
    – course is a point-to-point net downhill (see image)
    – lots of pace bunnies, e.g. 60 minutes, 62 minutes, 65 minutes, 68 minutes, etc.
    – interesting urban route through Toronto’s main street
    – live music on the course (4 bands on the route, and 1 at the finish line)
    – portapotties, water and Gatorade stations at start, 4k, 7k, and party site / waiting area
    – nicely designed medals showing Toronto landmarks; the 2015 version features the new-ish (2012) Puente de Luz

    The not-so-good:
    – long portapotty wait lines at start of race
    – medals not given out at finish line or exit chute – had to find volunteers who were handing them out at the party site and there were long lines. In my line, the volunteer ran out of medals and directed everyone to another line, so I had to line up twice to get my medal!
    – after the long medal lines, there were yet more long lines for water and food (bananas, Pita Break rounds, yogurt, cookies)
    – hard to get out of parking lot with all cars leaving at the same time

    At points during the course, and consistently after the 7k mark, the tall buildings will wreak havoc on your GPS watch.

    It was a fun experience running down Yonge Street with 6000 people and it’s easy to PR on this course, but the frustrating logistics make it unlikely that I will sign up again.
