Monster Dash

MD_MilesMonster Dash is a family friendly event that takes place in Leaside and just celebrated its Five Year Anniversary in 2016, its Southern Ontario’s Largest Halloween Run!  Monster Dash Toronto consists of a Spooky Mile and an accurately measured 5km and 10km run/walk. The 5km and 10km will be chip timed for prizing and posting results!

Never fear Monsters, costumes are not mandatory; however, we do encourage them as additional prizes will be  awarded to best costume, scariest costume, best group/team costume and more! Every runner is awarded a Finisher’s Medal! The best  part? It doubles as an opener, making your post-run beer that much sweeter.




The Spooky Mile is restricted to participants who are 12 and under. It’s a fun run, inclusive of a clock for kids to see their time. Spooky Mile participants receive a finisher’s ribbon and goodie bag. The best part is the surprise candy stations along the way so don’t forget to bring your trick or treat bag!

Miles the Monster (above) is an original GTR creation. Rumour has it he’s looking to scare runners in additional markets across the country, so watch out! For a complete overview, visit here.
