The Tannenbaum 10k is a flat fast and very festive race just west of Toronto’s Beach neighborhood. Come run with Santa and his helpers along the Martin Goodman Trail. This year’s event is shaping up to be Toronto’s most enjoyable 10k event of the year – again! This race continues to be fun, and friendly and a great value.

Why are we called Tannenbaum?

It’s simple, and here’s why:

Word Origin – noun, plural Tannenbäume

English, Tannenbaums. German.
1. a Christmas tree.
Origin of Tannenbaum
literally, fir tree

You see, our 1st race was in late December 2005, right near Christmas. But of course, we are supporters of all faiths and holidays!

We demandthat you refrain from running with your dog. Strollers are discouraged but if you start at the end of the pack and do not pass other runners unless there is ample room, we won’t take issue. Please be aware of the other runner’s space. The route follows some narrow paths.
