Shoe Donations: Donate your seconds for athletes who only dream of their first!

New Balance and Community Education Services (CES) Canada are bringing the Toronto community together to donate a record number of shoes at the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon (STWM).

Drop off your running shoes (new or gently loved) into the New Balance Donation Bin at:

  • The Expo (in the Registration area) or
  • Nathan Phillips Square at the New Balance booth

CES Canada will collect and send them to youth in need across 25 school communities in rural Kenya who cannot afford a decent pair of training footwear. To date, 5,000 pairs of shoes have been collected and sent in partnership with the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon.

Saturday October 20, 2018

You (or a friend) must pick up your race kit at the Runner’s Expo on Friday or Saturday. There is no race day pick-up.

What you need to pick up your packet:

  • You need to know your Bib # (will be emailed to you and posted on the online confirmation list on October 18th and available for look up at the expo)
  • Photo ID
  • OR
  • A printout of your registration email confirmation (or copy on your smart phone).

If a friend/family member is picking up for you, they need to have:

  • They need to know your Bib #  (will be emailed to you and posted on the online confirmation list on October 18th and available for look up at the expo)
  • Email or written permission from you (can be shown to volunteers from your smart phone)

 If picking up for friends/family, you can only do so for a maximum of three (3) including your own packet.

In May 2013 we moved to individual packet pickup policy, following the examples of the Boston Marathon, Chicago Marathon and New York Marathons. We will have security at the exits that will only allow three kits at a time.  

We strongly suggest that all participants take responsibility for picking up their own individual packets. 

Not only will this reduce your stress, but it will help ensure there are no errors in your registration data, that you have the correct shirt / bib number and are all set for 3.

Visit us at the Expo and help support our sponsors, vendors and charities that are taking part in the expo and helping to make the event day possible. 

We are offering an alternative race day packet pick-up option. Please use this form to request race day pickup: https://runcrs.co/2DZm1wg
