Recharge With Milk Half Marathon

A beautiful run that encompasses much of Mississauga’s beauty. This point to point course is a fast net downhill. The course starts at Robert Speck Parkway and City Centre Drive (just beside the Wal-Mart in Square One Shopping Centre), and makes its way west across the Credit River to Mississauga Road and then travels south for a beautiful stretch past the University of Toronto’s Mississauga Campus, Mississaugua Golf and Country Club, and continues through some of Mississauga’s most beautiful residential neighbourhoods, before winding along the scenic Lake Ontario Waterfront Trail, and along the Lakeshore to the finish at Lakefront Promenade Park. An incline is found at 10km. The ‘net’ downhill aspect of this race still exists, however, with a 250′ (or 80m) drop from start to finish.
