We are presently working on our plans to host the Scotiabank Blue Nose Marathon in the fall of 2021, November 6th and 7th.

Are you up for a challenge?

The Scotiabank Marathon is a Boston Qualifying event that takes participants on a 42.2KM (26.2 mile) adventure through the dynamic streets of Halifax, Nova Scotia. The course allows you to experience several main attractions, including Citadel Hill, the vibrant North end, Point Pleasant Park and the beautiful downtown core.

Halifax has gained a reputation for being a little “hill-y” but it’s nothing you can’t handle (We’re sure of it!). You can also find comfort in the knowledge that the whole city will be cheering you on!

Add the Scotiabank Marathon to your list of must-do’s, after all, when was the last time you ran UP HILL towards the finish line?

Ready to Giv’er? Giv’er Twice with the Double Double! Warm up with the 5 KM on Saturday morning before running the full marathon on Sunday. Twice the run is twice the fun!
