2017 – 2018 Canadian Race Calendar

For reasons that you may be able to imagine, Canada features a number of winter marathons that are held indoors. Indeed, there is a series of indoor marathons organized with events in Sherbrooke, Ottawa, Montreal and Toronto in December and January.

Now, if you are not afraid of the extreme winter conditions, the Yukon Arctic Marathon is probably just what you’re looking for. The organizers fancy it the world’s toughest winter marathon! Canada also has its share of fancifully-named marathons: Would you rather run in the Gopher Attack Marathon in Regina or in Prince George’s Mad Moose Marathon?

Not to worry, the choice is not limited to indoor tracks, arctic permafrost and places infested with potentially dangerous animals. No, here in Canada, you can also find a host of outdoor big-city road marathons. The capital city, Ottawa, plays host to a number of marathon events, including Canada’s largest, the ScotiaBank Ottawa Marathon, which is held in May and also the Ottawa Fall Colours Marathon, logically enough held in October.

Ontario’s other big city, Toronto, also hosts several marathons including the Marathon and the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon. Quebec’s major cities also feature events, including the Oasis Rock ‘n’ Roll Montreal Marathon and the Marathon SSQ Lévis-Québec which takes runners along both banks of the St Lawrence River.

The central and western provinces are not to be forgotten either, with the spectacular BMO Vancouver Marathon, the Marathon and the Scotiabank Calgary Marathon.

One more option is to start off in the US – in Buffalo, New York, cross the International Boundary – the world’s longest international border via the Peace Bridge and head for “the most famous finish line in the world” (or so the organizers say). This and more if you sign up for the Niagara Falls International Marathon

So lace up your shoes, pull on your tuque and let’s go run 42 clicks, eh?
