The Beaches Runners Club

group-shotThe Toronto Beaches Runners Club has grown from a few initial members in 2009 to well over 200 now! It’s no surprise we keep growing as we live in one of the nicest running neighborhood in Toronto! The ‘BRC’ is primarily a social running club. We do like to run and there are members of all levels to run with. We are quickly becoming one of the largest Social Running Clubs in Toronto. As a club with runners of all fitness levels, we have room for everyone!

When do we meet and where do we run?

Every Saturday, 8:30 am (8:00 am June – October) by the Starbucks at 1960 Queen St (at Kenilworth). Confirm this on Facebook here:

We also meet informally on Wednesday evenings at 6:30pm and Sunday mornings at 8:30 am at the Running Room in the Beach. We also meet at other times to be determined and communicated via our weekly newsletters.

We also have our BRC Excelerate Program. Personalized coaching, $150 per session. Train smart for your next half or full marathon!
