The Cape Breton Fiddlers Marathon

Located on the beautiful island of Cape Breton, along Sydney’s waterfront. Known for its “giant fiddle”, Sydney is full of vibrant, friendly runners who will welcome you with a smile. This flat, paved course runs along Sydney’s downtown waterfront on September 9th and serves as a Boston Marathon qualifying race. Runners will be joined by some of Cape Breton’s talented musicians to provide encouragement along the way.

Race kits can also be picked up during between 1:00-5:00 pm at Membertou Sports and Wellness Centre.
