Full Marathon

The Valley Harvest Full Marathon will take you on a 42.2KM journey through several  towns in the Annapolis Valley during the absolutely breathtaking autumn harvest. Taking you on a picturesque adventure past apple orchards, horse farms and pastoral scenery, through gently rolling terrain, it is a once in a life time journey – we invite you to experience it for yourself. The Marathon course is certified and is a Boston Qualifier.

The Valley Harvest Full Marathon is also an Abbott World Marathon Majors Wanda Age Group Qualifier. During the one-year qualifying period, athletes in nine separate age groups can compete in marathons across the world, including the Valley Harvest Full Marathon, to earn ranking points. At the end of the qualifying period, the top ranked runners in each age group will be invited to the Abbott World Majors Marathon Wanda Age Group World Championships.
