May 26, 2019 08:00 Saskatchewan Marathon Saskatoon, Saskatchewan
The first marathon was held in mid-May, 1979. Its timing allowed for the qualifiers in that event three months to ready themselves for the Western Canada Summer Games marathon, held on August 15, 1979. Tradition kept the event in mid-May the following year. For reasons not clear to the editor, the date of the marathon was moved to a fall date the next year and stayed at that time of year until 2003. At that time, competition with the ?other? marathon in Saskatchewan (the Queen City Marathon, also a fall event), necessitated a move of date for the Saskatoon event and it?s been held in late May since. The date for the event was chosen after a careful review by Norm Zepp, of the weather data for May dates. The weather for the late-May date has been favourable three of four years (with only May 28, 2006 being somewhat dismal ? with drizzle, wind and a cool temperature).
