2022 TCS Toronto Waterfront Marathon
Watch the excitement unfold at Toronto.
An eye on the future
The race weekend officially began at the expo, which included the goIT Challenge. goIT is a signature TCS initiative to capture the work of the student community in STEM areas of study. The goIT challenge saw students introduce prototypes of apps that would help improve the sustainability of cities. While all presentations were impressive, GoTO—an app designed to reduce waste and promote a cleaner Toronto—was selected as the winner.
Get set go
The 5K run began at 8 am, with participants starting from Lakeshore’s Ontario Place. An hour later, the 21K and 42K races kicked off from near the TCS offices downtown. Countless spectators gathered at the TCS-painted black, pink, and white streets to cheer for their loved ones.
The 2022 TCS Toronto Waterfront Marathon hosted a number of international athletes. Ethiopia’s Yihunilign Adane, with a finish time of 2.07.18, topped the male runner’s list, while Kenya’s Antonina Kwambai was the first female to cross the finish line at 2.23.20.
This is Team TCS
The employees from TCS Canada mirrored the excitement of the participants. From greeting expo guests to handing out water along the course and distributing medals at the finish line, the TCSers stepped up. Some even signed up to volunteer and walk or run the 5K. The marathon included several other events, such as launching the official ASICS race T-shirt and unveiling the medal designs.
