Toronto Charity Runs 2019

If you are going to run, you should at least get pelted with colour powders to make it interesting. The colour runs are my favourite walking or running sport to photograph. It plays heck with your cameras but it is definitely worth it. If you don't like the powders you can check out a number of charity - like the Santa Speedo Run and non-charity runs around town.
