We're doing another Hi5Run. Want in? Awesome! Let's get real, who doesn't love a Hi5? It is physically impossible to raise one without cracking a smile. That's just #hi5science.
WHAT IS A HI5RUN?
Grassroots community run, part flash mob, part random acts of kindness. We run, and we hand out free high fives. We make our way through the city grid and watch as people get thrown out of their daily grind. Our recent run raised over 22,000 Hi5's...we know this because one of our runners created a custom glove that COUNTS every Hi5.
START AND END LOCATIONS
Start Location: In front of the ROM (Bloor and Avenue Road)
End Location: CN Tower and a social at a nearby piub (Bring some coin for food or drink if interested).
6:45PM Warmup (This is a blast)
8:15PM Finish and cool down
HOW FAR DO WE RUN?
Lengths: 2K and 5K
***The 2K run will start at the same place and time. 2k runners take an Uber ride at the 2k mark and meet up with the rest of the pack at the finish.
It all works out :)
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Tickets are $10. You can purchse tickets online via eventbrite or in person at the registration area.
All the proceeds go to putting on the event.
HOW MUCH RUNNING EXPERIENCE DO I NEED?
Not a lot. You need to be able to run though. Not even all that well. TRUST...the Hi5's keep you motivated! This is the community for every experience level - whether a first time runner, or aspiring Olympian. It's about the people you meet, and the bonds you build.
WHAT DO I BRING?
(1) Jersey: Any White or bright shirt will do. Marking it up is optional, we’ll be bringing markers. If you'd like write a big "FREE HI FIVE's" on the front. Colourful headbands, crazy tights and superhero costumes are not only welcome, but encouraged.
(2) Smiles and Hi 5's: Bring plenty of them.
(3) Friends! Invite friends who like smiling, hi5ing and being awesome!
CAN I BUY HI5RUN MERCHANDISE?
If we still have shirts and headbands in stock, they will be for sale at the event.
WHAT DO I DO WITH MY STUFF?
We recommend only bringing what you can run with. Since that's not always possible, here's the scoop. One of our Hi5Run volunteers will put the gear in a baby carriage pulled by our DJ on Wheels. The Hi5Run team is not reponsible for lost or damaged items, but we're good people with a gentle touch. As an option, a lot of people run with a backpack as a way to keep their belongings with them on the run.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE RUN?
We will gather at the finish location for a cool down and hang out. #crew
