The Victoria Marathon is a beautiful, seaside course with lots of mild undulations and lots of flat sections as well. There is about 35 meters of elevation difference between the high and low points of the course.
The typically cool, though possibly wet, weather coupled with a relatively flat course can make the Victoria Marathon a good PR course or Boston Qualifier.
