May 6, 2018 07:30 Mississauga Marathon Mississauga, Ontario
A beautiful run that encompasses much of Mississauga?s beauty. This point to point course is a fast net downhill. The course starts at Celebration Square, next to City Hall, and makes its way west across the Credit River to Mississauga Road and then travels south for a beautiful stretch past the University of Toronto?s Mississauga Campus, Mississaugua Golf and Country Club, and continues through some of Mississauga?s most beautiful residential neighbourhoods, before winding along the scenic Lake Ontario Waterfront Trail, and back along the Lakeshore to the finish at Lakefront Promenade Park. Small inclines are found at 10km and 24km. The ?net? downhill aspect of this race still exists, however, with a 250? (or 80m) drop from start to finish. Due to the rate of decline being greater than 1 metre per kilometre, Athletics Canada is unable to certify any record times run on the course.
May 6, 2018 07:30 Goodlife Toronto Marathon Toronto, Ontario
The Marathon course is fast, downhill, and scenic. Starting at Mel Lastman Square in North York and finishing at Ontario Place, the Marathon winds through many of the City?s great neighbourhoods.

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!).

May 27, 2018 08:00 Saskatchewan Marathon Saskatoon, Saskatchewan
The SaskMarathon has a rich history. The organizers of the 30 events can be proud of all they?ve accomplished. There?s no reason to think the Sask Marathon will not continue as an important annual event in Saskatoon?s sporting calendar. The event will always welcome athletes of all levels in all three current distances: the 10Km, the half-marathon and the marathon. The SaskMarathon will likely continue to grow in numbers of participants, as well as in the overall scope of the event, with a festive weekend atmosphere evolving. The current organizers are hoping that as Saskatoon grows and more roadways and bridges are built, a point to point or preferably, a loop, course will be developed that can be kept (with only slight modifications) from year to year.
