As if they ever left.

April 27 marks the return of the Bay Street Rat Race by 2,500 financial district ‘rats.’

The five-kilometre run is sponsored by stn, the telecommunications firm, and presented by First Canadian Place Shopping Centre.

Other sponsors are The Globe and Mail, Toronto Life magazine, Sleeman Brewing and Malting, Jackson-Triggs and Audiovox Cellular Communications.

The race returns after a six-year hiatus. A portion of each runner’s $22 entry fee is donated to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

Entrants must wear business attire, and wing tip running shoes are recommended. There are prizes to be won and a party after the run at First Canadian Place Shopping Centre.
