ABOUT THE EVENT
Monster Dash is a family friendly event that takes place at the Ontario Science Centre, 770 Don Mills Road, M3C 1T3 (Don Mills and Eglinton on the TTC line).
100% of all pledges and donations support our charity partners, the 2019 event details will be announced soon.
Monster Dash Toronto consists of a Spooky Mile and an accurately measured 5km and 10km run/walk. The 5km and 10km will be chip timed for prizing and posting results!
Never fear Monsters, costumes are not mandatory; however, we do encourage them for additional prizes to be awarded to best costume, scariest costume, best group/team costume and more!
KIDS SPOOKY MILE
The Spooky Mile will be restricted to participants who are 12 and under. It will be a fun run and there will be a clock for kids to see their time, however it will not be chip timed.
Spooky Mile kids will receive a finisher’s ribbon, a Miles head scarf and goodie bag in addition to the same post-race amenities as the adults. The best part is the surprise candy stations along the way so don’t forget to bring your trick or treat bag!
We at Monster Dash encourage everyone to bring along their own cheering squad aka babysitter so Mom & Dad get to have some fun on the 5k or 10k!
Monster Dash is a ritual for many in the community and we couldn’t be prouder, says Ian Reid from U of T Track: "I am excited to defend my 6-year title and enjoy racing against all the fast up and coming young runners who take off when the gun goes off like there are spiders in their pants”

Race Director Peter Donato believes aspiring Halloweeners shouldn’t shy away from creativity. After all, “Halloween is the one time of the year when we can pretend to be someone else, so bring on the scary and bring on the fun!”

Top Rated by YOU! Testimonials My 7 year participated in the Spooky Mile and my 11 year ran the 5km. I highly recommend this event. It was very well organized and lots of fun. We will be back next year. Thanks again Yes, I would recommend this race to a friend. -------------------------------- First year I have done this run. I loved it. Our group walked the 5k to just have fun. It was quite dark where we turned around and hard to see people who didn’t have lights. Next year we will bring more lights just to see the ground where we are walking. The after food was amazing and the medals were a hit. We will try to bring more people in our group next year. A very fun night was had by all of our group!! Yes, I would recommend this race to a friend. Yes, I would consider attending this race/event next year. ----------------- Just did the 10k with Monsterdash.The route was different this year then in 2014, much safer and smoother, mostly even except just few small hills. This year, there were much less 10k runners than last year. Not a lot of cheers, laugh and inspiring volunteers, unfortunately. Amazing costumes though!!! I’d say that more course marshalls would be great for this new route along DVP. Once we lost our way, undecided where to turn on the way back, or to do a curve. Great goodies bag, good food after the finish! Yes, I would recommend this race to a friend. Yes, I would consider attending this race/event next year.
