Efficient performance. Innovation. Powerful, graceful forms. These are just some of the traits BMW shares with the Olympic movement. As a proud partner of the Canadian Olympic Team, we were thrilled to host a 5k training run- right here at BMW Markham with Canadian Olympian Eric Gillis!

Thank you to everyone who joined us on Thursday, September 1st for a beautiful evening run alongside Eric Gillis. We were thrilled with the turn out and we hope the run was great practice for the upcoming Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon! All of the athletes present at our 5k training run truly exemplified the BMW Group in human form: Efficient performance, innovation, power and grace.

There was great energy and a strong sense of mutual respect and camaraderie among all participants! See for yourself below!

Runners mingled and chatted before the 5k training run!
