Lab or laboratory lab·o·ra·to·ry (lāb'rə-tôr'ē)
1. A place for practice, observation, or testing.
RunLAB is for challenging yourself & achieving goals together…. as a community. In 2016, committing to achieve something you haven’t done before. Run more, run fast, or just START.
Our common goal is to run Goodlife Toronto Marathon (May 1st) as a TEAM. We want lots of runners out there, taking the streets of Toronto together, running their OWN races for their OWN reasons, with the help of our Crew, other Crews and Cheer Squads.
You may be ready of a 5k, 10k, half or even FULL Marathon. Even if you're not ready today, we'll help you get there during our 16 weeks of programming leading up to race day May 1st.
Over the course of the 16 weeks, our crew of runners will practice & learn how to run more effectively and enjoyably, with fun warm-ups, drills, city routes and lots of hang-time included.
Three (optional) weekly runs lead by Dhani Oks, Jenny McConnell, & Natalie Lodge will give you the support, guidance, and motivation you need to really stick with it. We all know, that joining a community of people striving for similar goals, makes it much easier to achieve them. So let's do this together!
Academy of Lions Run Crew is OPEN TO ALL and it's 100% FREE. We believe that doing things like this helps grow our community and gives people the motivation to train better, make new positive friends and inspire those around us.
Challenge yourself, but NOT by yourself.

Not sure which race distance to register for? We'll help you decide based on your goals & level of experience.
