About Blue Nose International Marathon

Are you up for a challenge?

The Scotiabank Marathon is a Boston Qualifying event that takes participants on a 42.2-kilometre (26.2 miles) adventure through the vibrant streets of Halifax and Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. This course allows you to experience several of Halifax’s main attractions on foot, including Citadel Hill, Point Pleasant Park and the beautiful downtown core, as well as the charming streets of downtown Dartmouth after a scenic trip over the Macdonald bridge.

Halifax has gained a reputation for being a little “hill-y” but it’s nothing you can’t handle (We’re sure of it!). You can also find comfort in knowing that the whole city will be cheering you on from the sidelines.

Add the Scotiabank Marathon to your list of must-do’s, after all, when was the last time you ran UP HILL towards the finish line?
