Saturday June 15th was an absolutely perfect day for a road race at the lululemon Toronto 10k, the 5th race in our AO/OMA Trillium Running Series. This fast course brought 10,000 runners together, but it was not your average road race. Canada Running Series and lululemon teamed up to create a spectacular event that brought participants and spectators, finish line yoga and meditation, and tasty eats, and Athletics Ontario was at the finish line for the whole show.
Athletics Ontario and Ontario Masters Athletics hosted their first ever Club Championship road race at this event. Using our policy for ranking, clubs required 3 or more participants with Athletics Ontario membership to contribute to the final club championship rank. The lululemon 10k race sold out in just hours this year, but even so, we had multiple Athletics Ontario clubs with 3 or more Athletics Ontario members participating. The overall ranking of the Club Championship event was:
Newmarket Huskies: 34 points
Longboat Roadrunners: 24 points
Toronto West Athletics: 24 points
Muskoka Algonquin Runners: 23 points
Fantastic work to all Athletics Ontario participants on your achievements!
