STWM Digital Champions

We've recruited a group of diverse, dedicated and enthusiastic athletes to share their journeys, ups and downs, motivations and challenges, as they train for STWM. Get to know the runners and join the conversation on our Digital Champions page and on our Social Hub, Epilogger.



The creative team is almost ready to reveal this year's new stylish technical T-shirt design, and fantastic new medals. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for all the latest updates. Don't forget to sign up soon and get your name on your race bib too!


Walt's Running Room Tour

In the coming months, Walt will be touring various Running Room locations across Ontario to get people excited about STWM! Keep an eye out for tour dates and stop by for contests, giveaways (official STWM and Brooks gear), and a friendly run with other STWM participants!

Tips from a 60-marathon plus veteran!

One of the benefits of running in the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathons is this newsletter with tips from one of the more experienced runners around, Running Room founder and owner, John Stanton.  John's been out there sweating, groaning and toiling his way through more than 60 marathons just so he could learn things from them to share with you!  Now you don't have to make the same mistakes, you can enjoy training more knowing that John will share tips with you that will help you become a better runner. 


And, of course, you can also take advantage of marathon, half marathon and 5k training clinics offered by the Running Room at all their locations and even on-line. 

Tips from John start next week.
