I wish I had a sprint map to navigate with when I was there with Emma, so nice and very good potential for a world cup sprint!

TOC has been strategically saving it for 30 years for Sprint WOC 2028.

I assume the St. George campus? Haven't been there, but just checked it out. Looks very interesting, but some big roads in the middle.

On a different note, maybe not world class, but definitely regional class... I'm still pining for a big sprint at Emory University--the McMaster of NE Atlanta ;)

Nice Klepper, in the same way Ramblers have been saving McGill for 30 years.

J-Man: yes, the St. George campus. They look down on the other campuses as former community colleges.

McMaster=World Class
UofT=regional class

Love it!

Inside the buildings is another story.

Seriously though between the tunnels/subway access and a few controlled road crossings I think UofT has great sprint potential since there are a lot buildings and fences and gardens.

WOC 2028 is a cool goal for TOC!

I agree with that. Toronto would be an epic WOC production. And by that time, some of today's juniors will be at their peak! ;) Imagine the possibilities!

Hart House Lane into Wellesley, and Museum subway station underneath Avenue Road are seamless crossings.

Nice finish possibility from Philosopher’s Walk into Varsity Stadium.

As a Torontonian, a sprint WOC would be the ultimate. All I do is bound through every inch of this city and dream of sprint races/city races/adventure races.

Soon enough.

Ontario Place with more animals added for the win.

I just want to briefly remind everyone that there was only one Canadian city that the former IOF president said had "immediate sprint WOC potential". And it wasn't Toronto.

Do I recall correctly that there's also been some thought given to a major urban event bid for Quebec City?
