How do you decide which marathons you will run each year? With over 65 marathons held in Canada, choosing your next one can be a daunting task. The right race depends on what type of marathoner you are: First time marathoners can rest assured their day will be memorable, no matter which event they choose. Time chasing marathoners, who are targeting a new personal best or the elusive Boston Qualifying time, want their races to be flat and fast. Landscape loving marathoners look for scenic courses, and they don’t mind running up a hill as long as there is an amazing view at the top. Finally, there are the Bling marathoners who are always searching for the next amazing medal to add to their collection. With the Bling marathoners in mind, we searched the country looking for Canada’s Top Ten Marathon medals. We found medals that spin, a medal made of rock, and even a medal that lights up. Prepare to fill your calendar with race dates as we present ten of the country’s most unique medals. You may even wear one of these medals for your next night on the town.
