Nike Toronto recently launched The Local, a new monthly running event that offers a new perspective of the streets and neighbourhoods of Toronto through the eyes of a local runner. Every month will explore a different theme that aims to tap into the cultural connections that Torontonians have within the city.
For their introductory month, Nike chose to kick off the event with one of our very own Food Runners, chef Dennis Tay of DaiLo. Led by Nike Run Club members and ambassadors, Tay took participating runners on a special route throughout the west end of the city, stopping at some of his favourite stops along the way. Runners started at The Loft, and ventured out to visit Kensington Market, Knife, and DaiLo. Tay spoke briefly at each stop, adding a great sense of social interaction to the route. The event finished off back at The Loft, where post-run snacks were prepared by Tay himself.
