Sunday 29 September sees the return of the Kennebecasis Valley Challenge Marathon organized by John Kelley. John organized this great race between 2004 – 2014 and is bringing the marathon portion back for 1 final year under his organization starting at 7.00am on Rte 100 in Bloomfield.
John has graciously handed the reins of the race over to Fundy Sports & Tourism from 2020 and we are excited to re-instate this great run back on the calendar featuring the full Marathon, Half Marathon and the ever popular Relay Marathon where teams of between 2 and 4 runners complete the marathon route. John has also re-certified the course to establish it as a Boston qualifier.
A confirmed race date for 2020 will follow shortly but the route used will be the traditional route John has used starting in Bloomfield and finishing at the Bill Maguire Center close to Renforth Wharf.
