Posted on : August 26, 2018

Race Kit Pickup Details 

This year's Race Kit Pickup is sponsored by our friends Mizrahi Developments. Here are the details so you can plan ahead:

Location: Mizrahi Developments, The One Sales Gallery (181 Davenport Rd.)
When: Friday, September 7th from 12:00 PM - 8:00 PM
           Saturday, September 8th from 12:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Snacks and refreshments will be provided!

Parking Details: Green P parking is available on Hillsboro Ave & Davenport Rd., and street parking on Hazelton Ave. The closest TTC subway station is either Rosedale Station, Bloor-Yonge Station, or Bay Station.

Fundraising Minimums: A friendly reminder that everyone who registered for the B&O Yorkville Run committed to fundraising a minimum of $100 for their selected cause. The fee you paid upon registration is not included in this amount. You will be required to fulfill the $100 fundraising minimum prior to picking up your Race Kit on September 7 and 8. Failing to do so will result in a forfeit of your Race Kit and registration. If you need help getting started on fundraising, please check out our tips on fundraising here or reach out to our Charity Liaison, Tami, at tami@yorkvillerun.com. 

Race Kits will NOT be available for pickup on Race Day. If you're unable to pick up your kit on Friday or Saturday, you may have a friend or family member get it for you. Due to the high value of the Race Kit (B&O H5 headphones!), they must bring a copy of your Race Kit email containing your bib #. This email will be sent to you a week before Race Kit pickup, so please keep an eye out for it. If you have any questions, please reach out to the Race Manager, Ainsley, at ainsley@yorkvillerun.com.
