Although all approvals and permits were in place, we have just learned from the Municipality that Talbot Street - a critical part of the much anticipated new route for 2019 - will be closed due to road construction. As such, for 2019, The County Marathon and Half Marathon will follow the routes used in previous years. Both races will continue to finish in Picton at the Fair Grounds, with the full marathon (0630 bus departure for Wellington) and half marathon (0800 bus departure for West Lake) starting at their previously established locations. Relay runners will be bussed to their start location. Adequate parking is available at the Picton Fairgrounds - no parking is available at the start of the half or relay transitions. All transportation busses depart from the Picton Fairgrounds.

Top 9 Reasons to run The County Marathon
  1. The course is fast, slightly rolling, according to Peter Pimm, and beautiful with a full road closure
  2. Almost no paper in our race kits, but you will get a reusable bag, a long sleeve race shirt, and a few other goodies!
  3. At the finish line Prince Edward Dairy Producers will help you "Recharge" with a complimentary chocolate milk - the best way to recharge after a race in the County.
  4. Then one of our local brewery's will help you celebrate your achievement with a complimentary beer! No Kidding!
  5. This is wine country - come early and do a wine tour of some of our 40 wineries
  6. You and your family matter to us! We have 13 circulating buses that will escort all participants to the start line. Your family can join you on the ride and circulate throughout the day to watch your progress for only $5/person (tickets available at registration)
  7. The finish line is steps away to our local hospital and we have a world class medical team ready to serve you
  8. Every participant is important to us and our finish line crew, from Fitness Powers, will place a medal around the neck of every finisher
  9. The residents of Prince Edward County are proud of each of you and will cheer you along the route to help you reach a personal best.
