Toronto Challenge - 2020

Notice: 2020 Road Race has been cancelled:

In response to the COVID-19 outbreak and pandemic planning and directives from the City of Toronto, Ministry of Long-Term Care and Ministry of Health, Seniors Services and Long-Term Care has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Toronto Challenge event scheduled for June 14.

This was based on review and adherence to the City of Toronto's Public Health's Guidance for Large Community Events / Mass Gatherings. and Government of Canada's Risk-Informed Decision-Making for Mass Gatherings during COVID-19 Global Outbreak.

While we understand that this decision is disappointing, it is necessary to protect the health and wellbeing of our participants and volunteers, many of whom are seniors or support seniors in our community and long-term cares homes.

As rescheduling the traditional event for later this year is not possible, we now are exploring alternate options of how the Toronto Challenge can continue to achieve its goal of "Supporting Seniors in our Community".

We appreciate your understanding and support in this very challenging time as we all face this rapidly evolving situation. Tyrone Bernardo will provide you with updates in the days and weeks ahead as we develop a strategy for the 2020 Toronto Challenge campaign.

If you have any questions, please contact Tyrone, Bernardo, Coordinator, Special Projects & Events at 416-392-9392,

Sunday June 14, 2020 / 9:30 A.M. / Toronto ON
