Regular Meetups

FRTO meets multiple times every week to run and have fun. We gather on the Church Street side of Barbara Hall Park, just north of the 519 Community Centre (519 Church St.) and in the heart of Toronto’s 2SLGBTQ+ village.


We meet 15 minutes before departure time for bag drop, announcements, and establishing running groups to stick together based on distance or training for upcoming races.

Our regular running route begins and ends in the village, meandering through the Rosedale neighbourhood and nearby ravines areas. Checkpoints occur every few kilometres to ensure that no one is left behind. In terms of distances, there are 5km, 6km, 8km, and 10km options. Longer options are sometimes available on Saturdays.


Alternative routes during wintertime and bad weather are offered and do not go into the nearby ravines.


We mix things up with a tempo or hill run on Wednesday evenings.
