The Scotiabank Full Marathon begins and ends in the downtown core but not before showcasing some of the beautiful neighborhoods of Halifax and Dartmouth. Halifax has gained a reputation for being a little “hill-y” but it’s nothing you can’t handle (We’re sure of it!). You can also find comfort in knowing that the whole city will be cheering you on from the sidelines.
The Edmonton Gorilla Run is a family event made up of a 1K Little Gorilla Run, 5K and 10K Walk / Run. It is a hilarious sight to see as hundreds of gorillas make their way through Edmonton's river valley wearing a gorilla suit with some dressing up their costume to participate in the "Gorilla Costume Contest".
The Saskatchewan Marathon started with just the 26.2 mile distance. Now there are five distances: Kids’ MaraFun, 5 Km, 10 Km, half-marathon and marathon. It’s a first-class event: it’s been a Boston qualifier for years and participants enjoy the accuracy and convenience of race chip timing.
