City Center Marathon Sunday, September 15th, 2013

Anyone going to run?

I absolutely am not ready so didn't sign up. They didn't launch it early enough in my opinion. This should have been launched in January to catch News Years Resolution Folks.

I'm going for it, I've done a good bit of training over the summer and should be able to finish. I definitely won't be breaking any land speed records though! Just saw the course layout and they put the run up the hill to Gregoire right in the middle. Should be a good challenge with that thrown in there.

Yes, I managed to get the course map up. It starts and finishes at Mac island. It goes along Franklin until Reidel street, then along prairie loop until king street, runs through lions park and then a short loop near the park in waterways. Then it goes up the hill to Gregoire, turns around and does the loop in reverse. Should make for a tough run!

I prefer running on park trails. It would be sweet to have similar marathon once the waterfront redevelopment is done and there is a nice trail by the river.

Me too. Even though I'm downtown I have done all of my training in the birchwood trails. I'm not a fan of going for a run and having to deal with crossing roads and contending with traffic. The birchwood trails are awesome, though you can set up one evil marathon route in there if you pick some of the trails in the ravine. I have spent much of my free time this summer in the trails and love it.
