2015 Trillium College Chilly Half Marathon

& CIBC Wood Gundy Frosty 5K Sponsors:

The 2015 Trillium College Chilly Half Marathon & CIBC Wood Gundy  Frosty 5K will begin in this many days, hours, minutes, seconds:

With eight campuses across Ontario, including a newly built Burlington campus, Trillium College strives to create knowledge, to open the minds of students and to enable students to take best advantage of their educational opportunities for a career change and training that fits their life within the healthcare, social, business and technology fields.


As their campuses are already involved in producing such community workers as police officers and paramedics, etc., and taking part in many community events and outreach activities, they will help protect all runners and walkers and help them tune up their bodies with a sport massage therapy on our event day--for free!


Drop by for a free session and check out their various programs on Doing so might just lead you to a fulfilling career!


As part of our partnership, Trillium College will offer discounted rates for their spa services. Check out the Spa Menu here and come over to relax after a race.

We are very excited to announce our partnership with Trillium College, one of the leading career colleges in Ontario, as the 2014 Chilly Half Marathon title sponsor.


It's a natural connection for us as their established healthcare school successfully runs Massage Therapy, Physiotherapist Assistant, Occupational Therapist Assistant and Primary Care Paramedic programs, among many more. We didn't even mention the fact that their CEO, Darryl Simsovic, runs a half marathon in under 1:40!

Here’s a video report by Get Out There Magazine from the 2014 Trillium College Chilly Half Marathon
