Race Description

The Canadian Morning 8Km & 3Km Fun Runs are a big part of the”Canadian” weekend. They are being held early in the day though – at 8:00 a.m. – so you will have to get up early to be part of the fun. The runs are held in conjunction with the Canadian Iron 226 Triathlon and Duathlon. This positioning allows recreational runners to join in the fun and chaos of the Canadian, and its 1300 participants. It will be a blast! You will really enjoy the course, which runs along the Rideau River on the recreational path – a beautiful and scenic course.

One of the most unique running events in Canada, the Canadian Evening Marathon, Marathon Relay, and Half Marathon, starts in the early evening (5:30 p.m. for the Marathon, and 7:00 p.m. for the Half Marathon). There is a time limit on the Marathon Run. Participants must be able to finish within a 5 hour time limit (i.e. must finish by 10:30 p.m. which is also the maximum time for the Iron 226 particpants). Runners can choose to run solo, or get a team together and run the Marathon Relay. You will be out there in the cool of the evening and will be able to share your run with the Iron 226 participants who are also doing the Marathon after a day of swimming (4Km) and cycling (180Km). We think it will be an evening like no other.

Athletics Canada/Run Canada Certification – ON-2009-152-BDC
