The 12th Annual Durham Quarter Marathon (DQM) presented is Canada's original 1/4 and 1/8 marathon event. The DQM boasts a unique “out-only”, net downhill route along the scenic creeks and waterfront vistas. The exciting finish area celebration will be held once again at Lakefront Park West. The #runforothers means that 100% of funds raised at the DQM go directly to help local homeless and street youth at The Refuge. You will be helping youth from the Durham Region find a renewed hope for the future and the tools to reach their full potential!
