Maritime Marathon Reviews

5.0 Stars from 1 Runners


By about 2013


Maritime Race Weekend is a well organized and fun event. It's held on a scenic course in a quaint coastal community, but is still close to the City of Halifax. I particularly like that it is close to my home and held on roads that I train on, but I think that visitors from away would also enjoy this race. For those who like a challenge, you can choose to run a 5K the evening before the marathon. The shirts and medals are great.

Race Tips

The course has a few hills, but I would consider it mostly flat. The toughest hill is about 3K in and you get to come back down it near the end of the race. The first and last 3 klms are along Halifax Harbour and very flat. There is also about 7 klms of very flat rail trail from klms 23 to 30. You should be able to run this course at a nice even pace.

Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

Register early as they do limit the field size. Also, plan to arrive early on race day as there is not much parking close to the start.
