An out-and-back course that starts and finishes at the Conexus Arts Centre, 200A Lakeshore Drive.
Our course takes runners through some of the most scenic parts of Regina including many areas of Wascana Park, downtown Regina and some of Regina's older neighbourhoods. The course takes place on a combination of asphalt roadways and pathways.
The idea of the Queen City Marathon was conceived in the winter of 2000, when some local runners were doing a lap of Wascana Lake and discussing the fact that, of all the provincial captials in Canada, Regina was the only city that did not currently have a marathon event. From 1970 until 1983 an event known as the Molson Marathon had been held in Regina, but there had not been a marathon organized in Regina (also known as "the Queen City") since then.
Immediately after the local runners had completed their lap of Wascana Lake, they made their way to the newly-opened Regina location of the Running Room store and quite literally asked the manager: "How do we organize a marathon?" The local store manager put them in touch with John Stanton, the founder of the Running Room store chain, who flew out to Regina to meet with them and assist them in getting started. Another local runner, Bill Pratt, was brought on board as the event's first volunteer race director and the Queen City Marathon was born.
