TORONTO, ON (June, 2023)/ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – Canada Running Series unveiled the highly anticipated 2023 TCS Toronto Waterfront Marathon medal this evening at the iconic CN Tower. The reveal took place as part of a special Canada Running Series event, with participants running from Great Lakes Brewpub to the CN Tower to view the medal for the first time and then back in celebration of the new design and anticipation of the upcoming 2023 TCS Toronto Waterfront Marathon. Attendees had the opportunity to witness the unveiling and learn about its design from the artist firsthand.

“We are thrilled to finally share the remarkable new medal design with our TCS Toronto Waterfront Marathon community,” said Charlotte Brookes, Event Director of the TCS Toronto Waterfront Marathon. “The marathon is such a standout event for Toronto on both a local and global scale. What better way to recognize this than to showcase our city’s most iconic landmark, the CN Tower, on this year’s medals, and to have the tower itself as the backdrop to this exciting celebration.”

The new medals will be awarded to all 25,000 race participants, with variations for distance. Designed by artist Inge Johnson, the medals are crafted from recycled zinc metal. This is a testament to the marathon’s commitment to be the most sustainable event in Canada, as highlighted through their recent Evergreen Certification from the Council for Responsible Sport.

“By choosing to use recycled materials, we are not only recognizing the beauty of the design but also reinforcing our dedication to sustainability and environmental stewardship,” said Soumen Roy, Executive Director and Country Head, Tata Consulting Services, Canada. “These medals represent the marathon’s ongoing efforts to make a positive impact through the work we do, both in the community and environmentally. We hope to inspire participants and supporters to adopt more eco-friendly practices.”

“I want to commend TCS Toronto Waterfront Marathon for their commitment to sustainability when designing these new medals,” said David Piccini, Minister of the Environment, Conservation and Parks. “Sustainability is a collective responsibility that requires leadership from across sectors. These actions align with Ontario’s commitment to protecting our land, air and water and ensuring a safe, healthy, and clean environment now and for future generations.”
