TCS Toronto Waterfront Marathon 2024

With over 12 years of history, the Marathon has evolved into a cherished tradition at Across U-hub. It serves as a unifying force for a noble cause, a celebration of the strength and impact of our community. It’s more than just a run; it’s a testament to our shared commitment.

Previously known as Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon, the TCS Toronto Waterfront Marathon has become a staple annual event at Across U-hub as many of you have heard.

In the past three years, we successfully raised over $100,000 to provide opportunities for East Asian youth to develop Leadership Qualities, build their confidence and pursue their Dreams. Across U-hub’s participants become encouraged and strengthened by each other’s determination and resiliency during their 5-month marathon training.

The TCS Toronto Waterfront Marathon 2024 will take place on October 19-20 for In-Person Race, also from October 1 – 31 for Virtual Race, so you have the flexibility of choosing a date and time that works for you. Please visit FAQ for more details.
