Canada's Magnificent Marathon

40 years running in Ottawa

By Mark Sutcliffe
On May 25, 1975, 146 runners gathered to run the first Ottawa Marathon. Little did they know that one day the race would be come the premiere distance race in Canada. On May 25, 2014 more than 6,200 runners were expected to participate in the 40th edition of what has become Canada's preeminent Marathon. 
With a stunningly scenic course and outstanding runner experience with over 100,000 spectators, the Ottawa Marathon has grown rapidly as the flagship race of an annual running event that attracts more than 44,000 people to a world-class capital city. To celebrate this milestone year, Run Ottawa has produced a special commemorative book. Authored by Ottawa writer, broadcaster and iRun founder Mark Sutcliffe, Canada's Magnificent Marathon will tell the story of Canada's biggest, best and most historic Marathon.
