The run route will begin at Nathan Phillips Square in downtown Toronto and finish in New York City’s Central Park. The 900kms in between will traverse many terrains and introduce challenging and picturesque backdrops. The route will be broken up into legs – each runner will cycle through their team roster and hit the pavement at intervals between 8-15kms.
What is Escape to NY?
Two teams of twelve runners will depart Toronto on October 29, 2019. Runners from each team will relay, non-stop across 900 KMS of varying terrain – around Lake Ontario, across the US border in Buffalo, down through the finger lakes towards NYC – finishing in Central Park on the day before the New York Marathon. The Escape to New York aims to raise $10,000 for Skylark walk-in clinics and counselling programs and services.
We are thrilled to partner with Escape To New York to raise funds and awareness for mental health services
for children, youth & families.
