The Railpath Community Run returns for a second year to raise funds for the Stop Community Food Centre. Rather than racing to a finish, participants will do time trials to see how many times they can run the path in a 45-minute window.

The Heritage Tree Tour will teach participants about some of the old and rare trees around Queen’s Park and Philosopher’s Walk. So, yes: you’ll get to spend some quality time outdoors and learn a bunch of new facts. The walk is led by arborist Philip van Wassenaer, who has been working on the preservation of significant trees for the past two decades. Make sure you register early, as it’s sure to be a popular event.

If you need something to distract you from the sad fact that the cold, cold weather is nearly upon us, here’s a show that’s well worth attending. The Bonspiel! Cabaret, put on by Bonspiel!

The event will feature some very special guests, including musician Darren Eedens and Councillor Mike Layton (Ward 19, Trinity-Spadina).
