Thanks to the generous support of our corporate partners, we motivate our participants to raise more dollars per participant than any other run in Canada. The result is a highly effective event where small, local charities take home 100% of funds raised.



Founded in 2009, Buca Osteria & Enoteca was built on an appreciation for Italy’s regional cuisine and the highest standards of quality, community and design.  Bringing classic Italian flavours and dishes to life in the historic King West area with passion and style, Chef Director, Rob Gentile has created a culinary program that is welcoming, creative, and expertly executed.  Inspired by Italian tradition, driven by quality Canadian ingredients the constantly changing menu celebrates locally sourced ingredients and a ‘nose to tail’ philosophy of cooking.


Bar Buca, open from 7:30am daily, is an Italian-inspired neighbourhood bar & cafe where the King Street community begin their day over delectable house made pastries and perfectly prepared specialty coffee. Throughout the day, guests can enjoy Chef Rob Gentile's creative menu of small dishes, with items like pizza Pugliese, mouth-watering spiedini (skewers), piatti freddi (cold plates) and spuntini (hot plates).
