TORONTO, May 12, 2023 – On Sunday, May 14, the iconic sports and style retailer, Sporting Life, welcomes back the Toronto Sporting Life 10K, presented by ASICS, sending thousands of participants down Yonge St., with net proceeds supporting Campfire Circle.

With more than 16,000 runners, walkers, and strollers participating in-person on May 14, and an additional 650 participating virtually from May 14-31, the Sporting Life 10K is one of the biggest running events of the year.
The Sporting Life 10K works closely with the City of Toronto, Toronto Police, Toronto Transit Commission and City Councillors to minimize disruptions for Toronto residents.
