5k run or walk: Heads west on the Boardwalk/Martin Goodman Trail for 2.5k to the turnaround location west of Coxwell Avenue, then returns east via the Martin Goodman Trail, moving back to the boardwalk for the final 800m to the finish.

Landmarks along the way: The Beach, Ashbridges Bay

10k run or walk: Heads west on the Boardwalk/Martin Goodman Trail for 5k to the turnaround location west of the Bailey Bridge, then returns east via the Martin Goodman Trail, moving back to the boardwalk for the final 800m to the finish.

Landmarks along the way: The Beach, Ashbridges Bay, shrub-lined pathways and the Bailey Bridge.

20k run or walk: Heads west on the Boardwalk/Martin Goodman Trail for 7.5k to the turnaround location at Commissioners/Cherry.
