2020 Souvenir Shirt

All participants in the Virtual Race will receive a New Balance technical t-shirt designed by Toronto’s Underline Studio.

“For these shirt designs, we wanted to centre the experience of the runner: the many paths that can be taken to the finish line, the feeling of adrenaline that comes from committing to a race, and the different points of entry that are so unique to each runner. We liked the idea of creating a symbol that points forward in a burst of movement and energy.”

Shirts sizes are available on a first come, first serve basis.

2020 Finisher Medal

All participants in the Marathon, Half Marathon, 10K & 5K Virtual Race will receive a unique finisher medal.

This year’s Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon Virtual Race Medal is a celebration of reaching the finish line, no matter what stands in your way.

The Bell Clock Tower at Toronto’s Old City Hall, located near the finish line of the in-person Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon, was chosen as the featured image on the medal to represent a beacon of hope in these challenging times, helping us to move forward and achieve our goals.

2020 Marathon Relay Medals

Our Marathon Relay medals showcase the beauty of Toronto’s Old City Hall: the Main Entrance, the Circular Tower, the West Wing Towers and a closeup of the Bell Clock Tower.

Placed together, the bottom of each medal connects to create the quad shape of the building, representing the combined Marathon distance run by the four members of our marathon relay teams. Just as the diverse architectural features come together to create a balanced building design, each unique member of the team contributes to enriching the shared experience to make the whole greater than the sum of the parts.


Customize your STWM finisher medal with your very own name and finishing  time!

On completion of your race, you can order your iTab here.
