Enthusiasm, discipline, practice and a healthy, balanced diet: these are the key ingredients to workout success. At Grain Farmers of Ontario, we know that the carbohydrates from whole grains are a must for runners pre- and post-exercise, providing essential nutrients and offering a great source of energy to help fuel your athletic achievements. It is for this reason that we are thrilled to announce our partnership with the Canada Running Series at this yearâ€™s Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon.
In order to support you on your training journey, we will be working with the Canada Running Seriesâ€™ esteemed Community Leaders to provide unique recipes and expert tips for fueling your workout and preparing for the big race. On Marathon day, we will be there to cheer you on, offering delicious, nutritious snacks at the Good in Every Grain Post-Race Food Station and spreading our love and knowledge of all things grain at our Growing Connections Trailer â€“ a fun, interactive stop near the finish line for spectators young and old.
To enjoy our easy, nutritious grain-inspired recipes, follow Good in Every Grain and @RunCRS.
A LITTLE ABOUT US

The crops these farmers grow cover 6 million acres of farm land across the province, generate over $2.5 billion in farm gate receipts, result in over $9 billion in economic output and are responsible for over 40,000 jobs in the province.
To kick off the marathon preparation, we have free race entries to give away to four lucky Ontario residents. Interested in winning?
