Supporting the Fredericton Food Bank
Once again the Scotiabank Fredericton Marathon Race Weekend is supporting the community by requesting participants to donate non-perishable, nutritional food items when arriving at the registration/race kit pick-up on Saturday, May 7th. The 2015 Food Bank drive was a huge success with hundreds of pounds of food collected along with generous financial donations.
The Full Marathon, Half Marathon and the 10K courses were certified in 2014. The 5K course is not certified but has been measured with a Jones Counter.
