New Book Celebrating 6 Years of the Bay of Fundy International Marathon

Just in time: a new book with largely unseen photos from the first 6 years of the Bay of Fundy International Marathon, Half Marathon, Ultramarathon and 10K.

2018 Photos

We apologise for the delay in posting these. Our official race photo company didn’t show up so we have put together a collection of photos from our volunteers and others who were willing to share.  A big THANK YOU to all of them.  It does mean you can’t search by bib number, but we think you’ll find these better than nothing.

Find them here or at https://bayoffundymarathon.smugmug.com/2018-Races
