Toronto Waterfront Marathon
Welcome to Toronto, the most multiculturally diverse city on the planet: over 140 languages are spoken. The flavors, aromas, sights and sounds of almost every nation converge peacefully in the streets of Toronto’s many neighborhoods: microcosms of culture thriving in a somewhat hazy ‘bigger picture’ that proud locals defend regardless. You’re likely to feel accepted here: it’s estimated that over half of Toronto’s residents were born outside Canada, and despite its complex make-up, Torontonians generally get along. Reports of intolerance and race-related violence are uncommon; no doubt a factor in Toronto winning the bid to host the Pan-Am Games in 2015 (July 10–26). The third-largest international multisport games comes with a $1.5 billion dollar price tag and is expected to draw 250,000 visitors to town. Home of the Toronto Waterfront Marathon.
