It’s running history makes this the perfect spot to check out Run Little Monkey as the flea is held in the Longboat Hall of The Great Hall on Queen West near Dovercourt. This long hidden gem of was the original gymnasium of Toronto’s first West End YMCA. It was first named Longboat Hall for renowned distance runner and 1907 Boston Marathon winner, Tom Longboat (who trained here in the early 20th century). The Lower Hall has now been completely restored, showcasing the original curved wooden running track as a really one-of-a-kind balcony. Join us in December for the festive holiday market to support local businesses and find some unique last-minute gifts.
