Released June 1st 2020

Dear Runners:  The County Marathon has always taken great pride in how we manage our races.  Over our 16 years of races we have had what we believe to have been an admirable safety record.  After careful review of our options for 2020 we have decided we simply can not guarantee the same level safety for our participants and volunteers as all of us have come to expect.  As a result there will be no actual events here on the October 4th 2020 weekend.  For 2020, for those runners who have already booked (or would like to), we will be offering postponement and/or virtual options for our various events.

More details will follow shortly.  

Dear Runners - after 16 years of successful race weekends we happy to announce we are open, as of 6 PM March 2nd 2020, for our October 4th 2020 race.

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.
