Marathon races in Canada

Racing in Canada

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.
