Registration is open for the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon/Half Marathon and 5k (taking place October 21st, 2018), and we’re accepting members to join our team!   You can sign up to walk or run the 5k, 1/2 marathon or full marathon to raise funds to support TVA. Everyone on the team receives a special discounted charity registration rate, and the first ten people who sign up and pledge to raise $300 or more in the half or full marathon, or $250 or more in the 5k, will get free registration! But that’s not all. We’re really excited about some new perks for team members this year including a private, exclusive virtual Q&A with Bart Yasso (Runners World’s “mayor of running”), 15% off at a post-run dinner at Suup Health Bar, and a yoga for runners workshop from Samantha Doyle. All team members will also receive a tip sheet on weight-training exercises for runners from vegan personal trainer Paul Landini, and a sample of Profi Pro’s complete, plant-based protein powder.
