15. We Run North York

The We Run North York run crew may be relatively new to the Toronto community, having recently celebrated their one year anniversary, but you wouldn’t know it by the number of new runners joining their ranks and their presence on social media!

Joyce Law and Lisa Sun met when they both ran with another crew in 2017. When the leader of the run crew decided to move on, Joyce and another runner, Matthew Ma rebranded the crew as We Run North York.

I love also seeing new runners come out and how they just discover the joy of running with other people

Joyce Law

In this episode, we discuss why the crew decided to plan destination brunch runs early on and why they continued the tradition a year later. The crew now has four executive team members, Joyce, Lisa, Matthew and Chris Womg. Joyce and Lisa will also discuss how they attract new runners, give back to the Toronto running community, and keep runners safe during a pandemic.
