About the Blue Nose Marathon

The Blue Nose Marathon is an annual, weekend-long event that promotes and celebrates healthy living and active lifestyles and welcomes all ages, abilities and fitness levels. 

The list of events includes a number of different race distances that you can register for:

  • Youth Run (2KM or 4KM)
  • 5KM 
  • 10KM
  • Half Marathon
  • Full Marathon 

For each distance, you have the choice to register as either a runner or walker. There is also an option to register and participate virtually! If you're participating in-person, the start and finish lines are both in Downtown Halifax. If you're participating virtually, you can race from wherever you are in the world!
