2019 GotoInsure.ca Fredericton Marathon, May 5, 2019

 

COURSE UPDATE: WE ARE CROSSING THE BRIDGE!

The 41st annual GotoInsure.ca Fredericton Marathon will cross the Westmorland Street Bridge on May 12th!

"We know it has been a trying time for local residents and friends seeing the flood waters hit our city for a second straight year" said Christine Little, co-race director. "We would like to express our heartfelt thanks to the City of Fredericton staff, our committee members, volunteers and sponsors for their hard work and efforts to ensure participants can run along the original route planned for May 12, 2019 which includes the Westmorland Street Bridge."

Participants running Sunday’s 10k, half marathon or full marathon events will cross the Westmorland Street Bridge, heading to the streets of the North Side before entering onto the city’s trail system and returning to the South side via the Bill Thorpe Walking Bridge to the finish line at Queen’s Square Park. Runners taking part in the 5k event will run along Pointe Ste Anne Drive past the Westmorland Street Bridge and return along the riverfront trail towards the Bill Thorpe Walking Bridge then along the Lincoln Trail to the finish line.

"We would like to thank residents for their patience as there will be several road and bridge closures, including the Westmorland Bridge on Sunday, and around Queen’s Square Park area," said Little.

The 41st annual GotoInsure.ca Fredericton Marathon Race Weekend kicks off Saturday, May 11 with a 3k run at 10:00 a.m. The 3k run starts behind Lady Beaverbrook Arena, heading north along the trail to connect with Bill Thorpe Walking Bridge trail for 1.5 km then turn around heading back along the same route to the start/finish line.

The ever-popular Youth Fun Run will consist of 500metre and 1 kilometre races at 2 p.m. Sunday with on-site registration starting at 12:30 p.m. at Queen’s Square Park.

41st Annual GotoInsure.ca Fredericton Marathon Race Weekend

May 11 & 12, 2019

The Fredericton Marathon is taking some elements from our 40th anniversary in 2018, like the Westmorland Street Bridge, early-bird swag and a 3k run, and incorporating them into a two-day event in May 2019.

A 3k run and the Youth Fun Run will take place on Saturday, May 11th followed by our traditional Sunday event consisting of a 5k,10k, half marathon and full marathon events.

Due to last year’s flooding situation causing courses changes at the last minute, we decided to work with the City of Fredericton to bring the Westmorland Street Bridge back for May 2019.

The 41st annual GoToInsure.ca Fredericton Marathon Race Weekend kicks off Saturday, May 11 with a 3k run at 10:00 a.m. Designed to allow family members of all ages to participate together and experience a run-type event along Fredericton’s trail system, the 3k run starts behind Lady Beaverbrook Arena, heading north along the trail to connect with Bill Thorpe Walking Bridge trail for 1.5 km then turn around heading back along the same route to the start/finish line.

The ever-popular Youth Fun Run will consist of a 500metre and 1 kilometre races at 2 p.m. Registration occurs at Queen’s Square Park and the course will be on Aberdeen Street just past Church Street near the start of the trail system with an out-and-back course along the Lincoln trail system.

On Sunday, May 12th runners will take part in point-to-point races with a separate start and finish line at Queen’s Park Square. Participants running the 10k, half marathon or full marathon events will cross the Westmorland Street Bridge, heading to the streets of the North Side before entering onto the city’s trail system and returning to the South side via the Bill Thorpe Walking Bridge to the finish line at Queen’s Square Park.

2019 highlights include: BONUS SWAG for runners participating in Saturday’s 3k combined with any of Sunday’s events.

Registration is now OPEN!
