Run here…. Run there…. Run anywhere!
Would it really be 2020 if you didn’t earn a medal virtually? For the first time ever, you have the opportunity to host Atlantic Canada’s largest fitness event on your own front step. The 17th annual Scotiabank Blue Nose Marathon will be held safely at your homes all over the world and we NOSE one thing – it’s going to be amazing!
The virtual event can be completed from any location you choose- on the road, on the trail or on the track. Participants may do a 5KM, 10KM, 15KM, Half Marathon or Full Marathon! Hit the road with your buddies (safely) or alone OR complete the Marathon as a team tackling the Killam Marathon Team Relay.
For the Marathon team relay, grab your run buddies, friends or family. Up to a maximum of 8 in total divide up the 42.2KM and receive a participant kit for each team member.
