Spring into Action Diabetes run 2016

Spring into action for a good cause.

Over 9 million Canadians are currently living with diabetes or prediabetes.  The Spring into action race is here and all money raised will be going to the Sunnybrook foundation, IChallenge Diabetes and the York University Diabetes Sports Camp.

This annual race is celebrating its 11th consecutive year and if you have been to one of these events before, you know this one will be good!

Course information

Spring to action bbq and party

A beautiful run followed by a BBQ and party

This race will start at the Wilket Creek Park in Sunnybrook for all participants.  From here you will trek through the ravine paths as far down as your race distance tells you to and then you will turn around.

The oddest part of this race is that it typically has about 500-1500 participants but the trails are not closed to the public so beware of little ones and people out for a casual stroll.

This race is ran on a normal road so wear the appropriate footwear


This race has been known by many for the great entertainment.  Since many people can relate to the cause this event has been growing year after year and attracting people who have never ran a mile in their life.

There is always live music by local bands, awards ceremonies, contests, games, a marketplace and the most popular of all – The Spring Into Action BBQ.
