Runner Information: All registered marathoners should have received a detailed instruction sheet this morning (it will be sent to 10K runners very shortly). Please read this carefully. If you have not received it, please check your spam folder or download it here.
We are sorry but registration for this event is now closed for 2013. We reached capacity in both the Marathon and the 10K on 6 June 2013. We hope to be able to offer this event again in 2014. Please continue to watch this space for further details.
Marathoners: please note, you should not have any tests involving any form of radioactivity between now and race day.
We are a new, two-country, cross-border marathon between the USA and Canada. Please join us for an event that features the best of Downeast Maine and the Atlantic Maritimes, lobsters included. The race weekend includes a companion 10K, a community breakfast and fun run, a pasta and lobster dinner, and an after-race street party.
We are a remote and rural marathon -- in one of America and Canada's most quiet corners. Our two beautiful places - Lubec, Maine and Campobello Island, New Brunswick - share shorelines, clean air, cool temperatures in June, and lighthouses that have guided the way for mariners for generations. Starting at the West Quoddy Head Lighthouse, the gently rolling course offers miles of water and harbor views. Crossing from the USA to Canada by way of the FDR Memorial Bridge, the course takes runners past the FDR Summer Home in the Roosevelt Campobello International Park, through the scenic fishing villages of Welshpool and Wilsons Beach, to reach the northern tip of Campobello Island at the Head Harbour Lighthouse (also called East Quoddy Head). The course then turns and retraces its steps back along the entire length of Campobello, back across the bridge into the USA, and finishes along Water Street at the Lost Fishermen's Memorial Park, in the heart of Lubec.
There are no big cities or bright lights here. We live simply, amid natural beauty. Our volunteers are local, energized by the opportunity to share where we live, work and retire. Spend a weekend or a week in our communities, and you will sense for yourself an unforgettable place, unlike any other you have visited. Our hospitality is genuine, and we welcome runners, their families, and other visitors, to our special place. Call us old-fashioned, but it's true.
We promise that the Bay of Fundy Marathon will deliver a clean, green and friendly experience. Come see for yourself, and bring your family!
