Start Thinking About Spring Racing with WIN

Register now before the first price increase for this scenic & fast marathon, half marathon, 10K or 5K happening in Whitby, Ontario on May 21, 2017

The 8th annual Whitby International North (WIN) Marathon, Half Marathon, 10K or 5K is taking place on May 21st, 2017 and boasts a scenic and fairly flat race course that takes runners over marshland on wooden boardwalks and along waterfront trails with great views of Lake Ontario. This relatively small race (only about 500 people sign up for the marathon and about 1,000 people sign up for the half) is both well organized and has all the goodies discerning runners come to expect on race day: a participant medal, great post-race food, an expo, a participant technical shirt and a fun and lively atmosphere.
The WIN Marathon, which starts and finishes at the Heydenshore Pavilion in Gordon Richards Park in Whitby, ON, offers something for everyone with a Marathon Run, Half Marathon Run, 10K Run, 5K Run, and 5K Walk. Even though this family friendly event is more low key than other urban races, serious runners and those looking for a personal best will love the speedy, non-crowded course at the WIN Marathon, which also happens to be a Boston qualifier.
On race weekend, stop by the WIN Marathon Expo at the Heydenshore Pavilion on Saturday, May 20, 2017 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. to pick up your race kit and check out all the great local vendors. And don’t forget about the free carbo loading dinner for registered runners on the evening before the race at Zingers Bar & Grill. Non-registered runners can purchase dinner tickets at the door for $15.00/person so you can bring your cheering squad along for some delicious eats too.

Does this sound like a race you would like to add to your “must do” list for the Spring season? If so, be sure to register online by 6:00 p.m. August 31st before prices make their first increase.
