The Race Weekend wraps up with our Finish Line Festival with activities for the entire family.
In 2016, we moved the Finish Line Festival to Ontario Place, right beside the Transition Zone. This ensured that the entire Festival Weekend took place at one race venue – namely Ontario Place!
It once again featured a community offering from the Toronto Police – this is always a huge hit with the kids!
The YMCA was back and along with Earth Day Canada, we had plenty of interactive setups to keep your kids occupied!
There was coffee from McDonald’s and food options from Hero Certified Burgers and food trucks (The Eggman and Ice Cream). As well, CLIF Bar was sampling throughout the venue on Race Day. We also had Radenska water to pass out to spectators while they awaited their TTF athletes within the Finish Line Festival area!
These offerings were all complemented, as always, by a fun beer garden presence from Steam Whistle and shopping and browsing opportunities from relevant sports vendors.
