Training Program

“You can do it, join in the marathon run on the street named by Guiness as “the longest street in the world”. From start to finish, the GoodLife Toronto Marathon profiles the diverse culture of Canada’s largest city. The course boasts cool temperatures, a negative drop in elevation with very few turns making this Toronto Marathon a favourite Boston qualifier.”

– John Stanton, Founder and President, The Running Room


The Running Room training program is ideal for those interested in completing a 5K to a marathon. This 13-week program will help you achieve your goal without excessive training or recovery. For further information please call your local Running Room.
