The annual Don Farquharson Memorial 4K is back at Sunnybrook Park!!!

TECHNICAL PACKAGE – Last updated Oct 15 @ 7pm

RECENT UPDATES – October 15

Start Time Update – Due to the change in gathering limits in Toronto we have added 2 more start times. Some of you have confirmed to switch to these new slots and we thank you for your flexibility. We are still looking for a handful of athletes to move from the 2:00pm wave and start at 1:30pm instead.

Seed Times – We are also looking to collect seed times for all athletes as we are running each wave fast to slow in 10-15s intervals. Please forward your seed time to randolphfajardo@athleticsontario.ca at your earliest convenience. The following link shows the current start list: https://athleticsontario.ca/technical/documents/20…

Schedule – Please review the updated schedule below. Due to the recent change and lower numbers, we are asking athletes to start their warmups down by the Sunnybrook Stables and then come up to the start/finish area at the Sunnybrook Park Sports Field 15min before the start of their race. Please try not to come to the start/finish area earlier than that. We are also asking that spectators not come. We understand that parents will be coming with younger athletes. Please avoid the start/finish area as we are very limited by the number of people are allowed within our sectioned off permited area.
