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.
