Aptly named, Nike Toronto recently introduced the Local Run, a monthly event that invites people to celebrate their city through the eyes of a resident runner. There's so much to discover in one of the most diverse cities in the world, so it's only natural that Torontonians would appreciate a new perspective to the place they call home. Not to mention that the Local Run encourages a social element between runners that would otherwise be hard to facilitate through tougher routes.
The first Nike Toronto Local Run was kicked off by Chef Dennis Tay, who took those who came out on a one-of-a-kind route featuring stops tied closely to his passion for food. It was topped off by tasty morsels prepared by Tay himself.
