Make sure your shoe laces are tied up for the 10th Anniversary Mississauga Marathon! Race Weekend will be taking place from Friday, May 3rd to Sunday, May 5th this year. All Mississauga Kids are encouraged to sign up for our 2K Fun Run/Walk on the Sunday or our
10K Student Relay on Saturday evening which are events that have been created just for you.
You won’t want to miss out on our 2K event with face painters, balloon animals and mascots such as “Sauga” from the Mississauga Steelheads OHL team at the start line. This run/walk starts at Hiawatha Park in Mississauga at 12:30 PM but be sure to arrive early to partake in all of these start line activities. Shuttle buses to the start begin at 10:30 AM and will depart from Carmen Corbasson Community Centre (formally known as Cawthra Community Centre). Explore the City of Mississauga as you run along Lake Ontario and dash your way to the finish line. A finish line filled with excitement with over 10,000 Mississauga residents as they cheer you on, a live band and all the while running alongside your classmates, teammates, friends and family. An event t-shirt and finishers’ medal will be awarded to you for this event. Sign up with your school today!
Find three siblings, friends, teammates or classmates and sign up for our 10K Student Relay where you will work as a team to complete the 10K distance of the Mississauga Marathon, roughly 2.5KM for each team member. Start time for this race is 6:30 PM and located at Lakeshore Road and Johnson’s Lane (just east of Clarkson Road) in Mississauga. Shuttle bus information for this event can be found on the Mississauga Marathon website. This is also a beautiful route with post race snacks, once you cross the finish line, to help with your recovery. An event t-shirt, finishers’ medal and even a chance for prizes are some of the other benefits to participating in this once a year event!
