Scotiabank Marathon Corktown Cheer Station!

After all those months of training, thousands of runners will take to the streets of Toronto on Sunday.  Corktown will have a cheering station at the corner of Cherry and Eastern and the runners will pass by TWICE during the race at 23k and again at 37k. It’s the perfect spot to see your marathon friends twice – at halfway and as they power to the finish.

There will be LIVE music – Phill Hood and The Exclamation will be performing all morning!

The better the cheer station, the better the race – and a chance to win money for Toronto Cooper Koo Family Cherry St YMCA Centre! Come out and show runners that Corktown is the best and loudest neighbourhood in Toronto! Runners will come by between 9:50am and 1:20pm.

To all of the drivers out there, there will also be several road closures.  See this link to plan ahead and avoid frustration.
