Welcome to Run for the Toad!

We are so happy to welcome you to our trail race and to showcase all that we have in store for you this year. We hope you will find lots of inspiration and information to help you through your race planning.

The Toad is vibrant; a dynamic trail race where fun combined with the trail racing takes place throughout Tent City - especially in 2018, as we are remodelling Tent City like never before. Our main tent will be the awe inspiring scale of the 21st century ultimate in temporary custom shelters, ensuring weather-tight protection in virtually all weather conditions.

The Toad isn't just a trail race it is one of the great Canadian races. It also brings huge numbers of spectators and families. Then you have the sit down white table cloth post race dinner, children’s activities, the many complimentary amenities, great swag and Expo – so it’s also a race with executed planning and attention to the details.

We've packed this year full of ideas so you can plan your visit down to the hour ...

International travellers - Our host hotel (Best Western Plus Cambridge) is a 50 minutes drive from Toronto Pearson Airport.

We are here to make your visit one you will remember for a long time to come.
