“A Midsummer Night’s Run is a magical evening of running staged on Toronto’s East end trails and Lake Ontario. The run will start before the sun sets and will be finished by the light of the moon. Shakespeare’s own words well describe this night as being “…swift as a shadow, short as any dream…

A Midsummer Night’s Run participants have raised over $100,000 for SickKids Foundation and Arthritis Research.”
