Route information
Runners will be taken on the lakefront paths around Caldecotte Lake to complete the marathon. A mix of hard gravel, some sections of concrete, and a few yards of mud and grass, this is a great trail run for new and experienced runners alike.
Runners will complete the course 7 times and those running in the Anti-Clockwise Marathon will, as expected, run the course in reverse.
