Sweat and Soda is a cafe devoted to runners and cyclists. It has lockers (bring your own lock), healthy snacks as well as good coffee and tea. They even have both a ginger kombucha and a cold brew coffee on tap!

RUNNING ROUTES

Runners will meet at Sweat and Soda at 9:00 am, to begin at 9:10 am.

9 km (main route) option:

We will start out running east on Queen two blocks to Leslie, south to Lake Shore Blvd., then east along the mixed use path (on the north side of Lake Shore Blvd.) to Coxwell, crossing over Lake Shore Blvd. to the south side of the road at the traffic lights, then continuing on the bike/running trail into Ashbridges Bay Park and following it eastward.

At the bath house switch over from the paved path to the boardwalk. When you reach the end of the boardwalk (at Silver Birch, beyond which there is only a sand beach) turn around and double back heading west.

7 km option:

Same as 9 km except when running the Boardwalk turn back at Kew Gardens (where you will see the hockey rink and beach lawn bowling clubhouse):

11 km option:

Those wishing to run a little further can stay on the boardwalk that becomes the Martin Goodman Trail Boardwalk wrapping around Woodbine Beach, getting an extra 2 km in before joining back with the main route at Coxwell.

After the run, we'll all meet back at Sweat and Soda where we can re-hydrate with excellent tea, coffee, or kombucha tea (on tap!).

What you need: good running shoes, a wind-breaking shell, long sleeve running shirt, and long running pants, gloves, and a hat or toque. If you don't have running gear yet, consider going to the Black Toe (Bathurst and King) or Running Room (multiple locations across the city) and asking for their advice. It is also recommend you carry water along with you if you have a running pack or can run with a water bottle (alternatively, hydrate well before we begin).

How to find us:We'll be outside stretching at 9:00 am (and start our run at 9:10 am) * note walkers will meet in parking lot at Ashbridges Bay at 9:15 - see description below.
