About Marathon By The Sea

Marathon by the Sea is held annually in Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada. The race is a Boston Marathon qualifier and is held in early August. Saint John's coastal climate has made the marathon known for its cool temperatures in spite of the summer season. The marathon was given a multi-page feature in Runner's World magazine, which called it "a race with a big heart and a warm smile -- and a perfect late-summer spot on the calendar... just right if you're looking for a break from the heat down south".

Overview

Participants will hit the streets running taking in some of the most breathtaking water views the Bay of Fundy has to offer. Participants will pass by the Market Square main stage on the boardwalk listening to some of the best music the East Coast has to offer. Then it’s onto the Harbour Passage Trail where runners will be treated to great views, friendly volunteers and the sights and sounds of the world famous Saint John River. Runners continue over the Reversing Falls Bridge to the western edge of Lornville where participants will return back to city centre via the Harbour Bridge; this is the only time pedestrian traffic is allowed to cross the bridge. The return to start/finish will see runners passing along such beautiful tree laddened and historic streets like Mount Pleasant Ave then into one of Canada’s largest urban parks, Rockwood Park then exiting the park to return back to the start/finish.
