8. Forbidden 5
Play • 1 hr 9 min

This week we’re speaking with the organizers of the Forbidden 5 race and we get them to spill the beans on everything we wanted to know about their popular race, except their names!

When the global pandemic forced race directors to postpone or cancel races, two friends in the GTA running community came together to give runners a reason to keep training; while the name of the race may give the impression runners were participating in the some sort of illegal activity, the race encourages runners to “come together while staying apart” to hit their fastest times.

We’ll discuss how the race organizers selected the distances, the courses, and how they track the runners to identify the male and female winners!
