Halifax Marathon & Half Marathon

Taking place on July 1st, the 2018 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 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. It's challenging, it's hilly and it's very much a taste of Halifax, with urban, upland, woodland and industrial heritage all mixed together!
