***** 27 SEPT: Bad news: we've reluctantly cancelled the October 15th Why Just Run the Parks event. We just weren't seeing the number of participants that would justify staging the race. It's been a challenging year for most event organisers, and ours was no exception. If you entered WJR3, your refund is on the way. We'll be back in 2012! *****

Toronto has been called a 'city in a park'. The final event of the 2011 is going to show you some of that sweet green goodness, aided by map and compass. You'll start out in a (currently) top secret Toronto park, with nothing but a map, a TTC pass, and a sense of adventure. And pants, don't forget pants. When the horn goes, you're off - in a race to find checkpoints scattered through a handful of Toronto parks. You're allowed to run, or take TTC, but no other forms of transportation are allowed, not even your mom's minivan.
Gather the checkpoints, return to base, high fives all around. Easy, right? Not so fast, bucko! This is Why Just Run? and we value your mind just as much as those flashy sneakers. What good is brawn without brilliance? You'll need to brave and beat our devious challenges to score big in this race!
