CrossFit 416 Does the Waterfront Marathon!

Toronto Waterfront 5k/Half/Full Marathon + GRIT Running 

Sign up for the Toronto Waterfront Marathon and train with GRIT Running!

We are looking to build a team of runners to tackle the Toronto Waterfront Marathon.  If you are looking for the perfect time to cross a race off of your bucket list, this is your chance!!  Shake off those lazy summer days and challenge yourself to take on a 5k, half or full marathon.

GRIT Running will help you get there!  We will kick up your fall fitness regime and improve your running through a prescribed program that goes beyond accumulating more miles on your feet.  This six-week program is open to everyone, from the never ran before novice to the veteran runner.
Are you curious but don’t know what race is for you?
  • If you are new to running or just want to improve your overall fitness, then the 5km is a great option to build your stamina;
  • But if you know already you can do a 10km run, then push your limits and take on the 1/2 marathon; or
  • You’re looking for the ultimate challenge, and have a fair amount of running experience, there’s no question for you – It’s the full marathon and nothing else!
The GRIT approach is balanced, progressive and personalized. We challenge our runners by identifying gaps and building on their strengths. We use techniques that progressively overload each athlete’s ability, and we prescribe times and distances based on their scored assessment.
What you need to know:
  • The program will run from Sept 6 – Oct 21.
  • Baseline testing will be conducted on Wednesday, August 30 at Central Tech (Harbord and Bathurst).
  • Classes are held Monday and Wednesdays at 6:45 – 7:45.
  • Prescribed long run homework to be done on the weekends.
  • As a bonus, your sign up will include a GRIT Running t-shirt.

We’re hosting a FREE information session on Sunday, August 27th.  Bring your friends and learn more GRIT before you sign-up.  More details to come.
