Dear Runners;  We are not the largest marathon - and yet we are not the smallest either.  But we do try to keep up with the times.  We just loaded the County Marathon on to Strava and hope with your feedback we can polish our virtual image.  The route is found at https://www.strava.com/routes/4247597 .  Cheers and happy running (such an easy winter to train!!!)

There are those days when the weather sucks - raining (like the first Sunday in most of the Octobers we have seen over the past 12 years) or snowing as it was here January 12th or simply freezing rain such as this past Saturday the 16th or foggy or whatever weather causes drivers to be suprised when they see us on the roads.  We are looking at providing a way to be seen on the road - this is not something you would wear every day but just those days when you know the small reflective patches on your running gear simply aren't going to cut it.  What is the County Marathon committee thinking of as we come into our 'lucky' 13th running?  A customized (to our specs) running sash - made in Canada (of course) such as seen below.

This being the real thing it has the following features 

    • 100% polyester
    • PVC yellow reflective tape
    • Storage pocket on left strap
    • Adjustable elastic waist and chest bands

Dear fellow runners;  Finally we almost had a perfect day for the 2016 marathon - we are still working on getting the helpful breezes in the right places.  This year we had a tailwind from the east (a rare thing as our fall breezes are generally out of the west) which worked best for just one section of the course as it travels west just out of Bloomfield.  Tracy in her new position has; adjusting that slightly, on her to do list for 2017.

As a separate note, on behalf of our Committee and the Board of the Prince Edward County Marathon, I wanted to give special thanks to a few people who recently helped our race out enormously.  They are, as follows, in no particular order:  Al from Runners Choice Kingston Alan from the Toronto Waterfront Marathon Marc from Sportstats and Dan from Baldwin Law.  We absolutely can not say how much you helped us; but thank you is hardly enough to express our gratitude for your efforts over the last few weeks on our behalf.  

On a final note thank to Kirsty, Kelli and Kathy for your enthusiastic reviews of our race in Race Guide!
