Which Marathons Canada Event Will Inspire You?

Due to inclement weather Canada is best known for, there are both indoor and outdoor marathons to choose from. If you are an extreme runner and enjoy the challenge of running in cold weather conditions, Canada is the place for you. 

Try your hand at the Gopher Attack Marathon, known as the toughest winter marathon on Earth, or enjoy the beautiful fall leaves at the Ottawa Fall Colours Marathon.

There is something for every level. If you are more of a flat city marathon lover, try the Oasis Rock ’n Roll Montreal Marathon or the Marathon in Ontario. With so many different landscapes to explore, there are a vast number of choices for a half, full, or even an ultra marathon. From beginner to expert, there are fun and creative runs to be found just about everywhere you look. 

Best Marathons in Canada for Your Next Destination Run

If a flat and fast course is your forte, then the Scotiabank Ottawa Marathon is a perfect choice. It is the largest marathon in Canada and has a worldwide following. The Scotiabank Ottawa Marathon is a great choice for both newbies looking to get their marathon feet wet and seasoned veterans trying to beat their personal best. 

And if trailblazing is your pick, the Canmore Rock Marathon is it! Not only is it an amazing hilly terrain course, the benefits of the run help to fund CAUSE, which aids children in Guatemala, Sierra Leone, and Honduras. The trail involves the most beautiful scenic mountain views. 

Or if water is your "thing," then the Yukon River Trail Marathon will inspire you. The course is one of the most challenging you can find, and wondrous too. Participants will witness breathtaking scenery and rugged terrain, which is why it is a challenge for even the most seasoned of athletes.

Whatever it is that inspires you to run, you can find it with one of the best marathons in Canada this year! Mark your Canada marathon calendar, register, and starting training today.
