About B&O Yorkville Run:
The B&O Yorkville Run, Canada’s premier 5K road race, provides a luxurious experience to its 1,000 participants—from its high-end race kit valued at $365 and includes a pair of B&O PLAY Form 2 headphones, technical t-shirt from New Balance, complete sport-fuelling system from Vega, and premium tea from David`s Tea — to its oversized finishers medals and après-run hors d`oeuvres served by white-gloved waiters courtesy of Yorkville restaurants.
Since its inception in 2010, the B&O Yorkville Run raised over $200,000 for YWCA Toronto women`s shelters. This year, the event is also partnering with Jesse Ketchum Public School, Prostate Cancer Canada, and Mount Sinai Hospital to raise funds for local programs and initiatives. Fundraisers who raise more than $500 are rewarded with high-end prizes from Bang & Olufsen Yorkville, Harry Rosen, Holt Renfew, Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Tiffany & Co. and other Yorkville boutiques.

About Canadian 5K Road Race Championship:
The B&O Yorkville Run was named Canada’s fastest 5K road race from 2010-2013, attracting the world’s best-in-class runners. The race is so fast that Athletics Canada, the national governing body for track and field, road running and cross country, designated the race as the inaugural Canadian 5K Road Race Championship. The championship race at 9:00 a.m. promises to draw 200 of the country`s best, including Olympic and Pan American Games contenders, to compete for the title and a total of $8,000 in prize money.
