Our Marathon Weekend features four different races – Marathon (Main and Early Start), Half Marathon, 8K Road Race, and Thrifty Foods Kids Run.
This world-renowned marathon is a beautiful, seaside course with lots of mild undulations, but with a maximum elevation change of only 74 feet. An amazing race whether this is your first marathon or you are a seasoned marathoner. All participants receive a long sleeve New Balance technical shirt, finisher’s medal and certificate.
Marathon Early Start
If you are going to take over 5:30 min to complete the Marathon, then you need to start with our Early Marathon start group. The course closes at 2:00 pm so we want to make sure you get there on time!
The Half Marathon follows a good portion of the Marathon route and you will enjoy beautiful Victoria landmarks throughout. All participants receive a long sleeve New Balance technical shirt, finisher’s medal and certificate.
8K Road Race
The 8K Road Race is a fast paced beautiful scenic route through downtown, Beacon Hill and finishing along the ocean front. The 8K is a great distance for every participant. All participants receive a short sleeve New Balance technical shirt, a finisher’s medal and certificate!
Thrifty Foods Kids Run
The Thrifty Foods Kids Runis a 1.25 km out and back starting at 10:30am. And we have a new route this year! We start on Government St, go right on Superior, right on Menzies, turnaround at Belleville and return the same way. Keep to the right!
Finish line will be in the same place as the start line. After they finish, kids will be directed to move north on Government, into the “Finish Zone” for medals and snacks. Note that finish zone will not be fenced in – parents / guardians should make arrangements to run with their kids or meet them within the Finish Zone right after the race.
The run is open to all kids 12 years and under. Parents can run alongside their child in the kids run and are not required to register. After the run, stick around for music, snacks and special guests.
