Marathon - Marathon Taking place on July 2nd, the 2017 Halifax Marathon is going to be a great way to bring your summer to an exciting and fulfilling start. Incorporating a half Marathon and fun run plus lots of other activities at the event's HQ, it's already on many "to-do" lists for the year!
The Route:is certainly a bit different. With a single lap for Half-Marathon runners and two for the Marathon, its a hilly opening few miles before a kinder run in to the finish.
