Run the "6ix" with The Ritz-Carlton, Toronto
Every Wednesday | Please see the Concierge Desk for timing.
Rogers Centre & Lakeshore
Distance: 6.23km
Climb: 50m

Look for the $5 million Art instillations in and around the Centre. On the northwest and northeast façade is a sculpture by Michael Snow, "The Audience". As well, inside on the north wall is a steel and glass sculpture with over 2000 signature of people involved in the construction of the Centre. It also consists of artifacts found during excavation such as musket balls and pottery.

Union Station marks the beginning of the "PATH", a 27km underground pathway connecting major buildings in the downtown core.

Art Gallery of Ontario & Kensington Market
Distance: 5.6km
Climb: 36m

The new AGO is Toronto-born Frank Gehry’s first building in Canada and marks the very place where he made the initial connection between art and architecture. Hallmarks of his AGO design connect the city and the Gallery in provocative new ways including,dramatic sculptural staircases, the warmth of Douglas fir, and the extensive use of glass which infuses the galleries with natural light. As you will discover, it is an extraordinary new home for extraordinary new art.

A local favourite monument and meeting marker in Kensington Market is the cat on the kitchen chair and is a poignant representation of the unique area. Cats rule supreme in the market.

When passing through China Town, look for the Pole Collonade. An art installation along Spadina Avenue depicting various important figures in Chinese culture such as a rooster, dragon, blossoms and more.

St. Lawrence Market & Distillery District
Distance: 5.66km
Climb: 37m

The Distillery District is the only pedestrian zone in Toronto. It also is home to the largest collection of Victorian-era buildings in North America which contain numerous cafés, restaurants, and shops within them.

The old Bank of Montreal building which is home to the Hockey Hall of Fame, is one of only 12 buildings which survived the Great Fire of 1904. The façade has been restored to its 1850’s charm and occupies its original position on Yonge Street.

University of Toronto & Financial District
Distance: 6.06km
Climb: 46m

Check out the Allan Lambert Galleria. Sometimes referred to as the “Crystal Cathedral of Commerce” is an atrium designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, which connects Bay Street with Heritage Square. The six storey high pedestrian thoroughfare is structured by eight freestanding supports on each side of the Galleria, which branch out into parabolic shapes evoking a forest canopy or a tree-lined avenue because of the presence of building facades along the sides of the structure.

The CN Tower is outfitted with 1,330 super-bright LED lights. They are lit every night from dusk until 2am. Different colours are used to celebrate holidays such as red and white for Canada Day and rainbow colours for Pride.
