Team Red Door has been participating in the STWM since 2010 and has been growing ever since. We’re a fun team with a mix of serious and casual runners, but all of us are passionate about raising awareness and funds for the important programs to help women and families at the Red Door overcome homelessness and abuse. See who's on this year's team!

The Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon is on Sunday October 20, 2013.
Please make note of your start time for your specific event:
5K Start Time: TBA
Half and Full Marathon Start Time: TBA
Technically, the last day to register is October 14th 2013, but STWM reaches capacity very quickly, especially for the 5K. We recommend you register before Sept. 1st to ensure you get a spot.
After you’ve registered through our website, we will contact you by phone within 48 hours to confirm your registration. You’ll then receive 2 emails, one from jmeeventsonline.ca, and one from us providing you with your fundraising page log-in.
For complete details on the course routes please visit - http://www.torontowaterfrontmarathon.com/en/details.htm#course
When we call to confirm your registration, we will ask for a credit card number from you to hold as a deposit. If you are unable to meet your goal, we will bill your account for the entry fee as listed above.
But you are not responsible for making up the difference between your goal and the amount actually raised.
Experience shows, if you try you succeed! Our Fundraising Toolkit is full of handy resources to help ensure you meet your goal.
We'll provide a username and password for you when your registration is complete. If you’ve forgotten or lost your username and password, please email email@example.com
