Run or Walk on the Toronto Vegetarian Team!


June 5, 2014

Carla at the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront MarathonClick here to sponsor the Toronto Vegetarian Team!

Registration is open for the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon/Half Marathon and 5k, 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 $200 or more for TVA will get free registration! But that’s not all.

All team members will receive VEGA products, a free vegan Indian meal from MNR Distributors, an invitation to a raw cooking demonstration by Andria Barrett and an invitation to a post-run dinner at Rawlicious where they’ll get a free smoothie and shared appetizer.

New this year – team members will also get 50% off of a running shirt from No Meat Athlete and a coupon for 50% off anything at the Meat Free Athlete store so you can run the race with a clear veg message if you like!

Plus, you have the opportunity to win some great prizes from Marni Wasserman, Grasslands, Savour Toronto’s Vegecursion tours, Meat Free Athlete, Vegan Powerlifting, Not So Hollow Farm and No Meat Athlete if you’re one of our top three fundraisers!

Our goal is to raise $10,000 for TVA to expand our outreach program, distribute more vegetarian starter kits, and bring in more high profile speakers to the Annual Vegetarian Food Festival! Most importantly, the larger our team is and the bigger our presence at the race, the louder our message that vegetarians are indeed strong, athletic and healthy. We hope you’ll join us to make these dreams a reality.


The race takes place Sunday, October 19th. But the sooner you join the team, the more time you have to fundraise and spread the word!


The race is a beautiful, flat course that follows the shoreline of Lake Ontario in the central Toronto waterfront. The 1/2 marathon and marathon begin near Osgoode Subway Station, and the 5k begins at Exhibition Place.

How do I join?

To join the Toronto Vegetarian Team please contact Barbi Lazarus at or 416-544-9800 to receive the special registration code and next steps.
