Transferring a registration
Because we have received a number of requests to transfer a registration to another runner, we have decided on the following:
I. Transferring a registration to another person will now be permitted on May 11 only, at the Crowne Plaza from 2-6 pm. Here is how it will be done:
1. Go the table set up for transfers.
2. Have proof from the registered runner that they are giving you their spot or better, have the registered runner with you.
3. Have $20.00 in addition to any event change fee.
4. It is the responsibility of the transferring person to reimburse the fee that the registered person paid.
5. You will receive the bib of the registered runner with their name on it. You can tape over it if you wish.
II. Registered participants changing their event distance can do so on May 11.
III. Persons wishing to defer to next year must do so one week before the event. Effectively there will be no more deferrals to next year.

Message from the Race Director
The reason for the cap is simply one of numbers. The course is not conducive to an unlimited number of participants and we want to offer a quality event for the number of participants we can accommodate. At 1500, we will still have 300 more runners than last year and congestion is a concern. Once again we regret that we could not accommodate everyone and feel for those who were not able to register before the limit was reached.
We have started a Guestbook! Here you can leave your comments, compliments, ideas whatever. Or just let us know you are looking forward to it or whatever you want to share with us, concerning the Fredericton Marathon that is.
You can find our Guestbook here!
This year the organizing teams for the Scotiabank Fredericton Marathon, the Saint John Marathon by the Sea and Moncton's Legs for Literacy have cooperated in creating a Tri-City medal.
What does this mean?
That means that you will get a medal for running/walking any distance in each of the 3 races, but if you compete in all races (so Fredericton, Saint John and Moncton), you will have the complete medal. All medals are connected, so run 'em all and you have the Tri-City event medal!
To make sure that you will have all three of them, you better register now for the Fredericton race which is the first. Register here!
Note: This is for all participants, whether you run or walk!

26.2 The Marathon Website
With ongoing efforts to make your experience as a participant in the Fredericton Marathon more satisfying and complete, we have made arrangements to include an excellent Marathon website as a link to a comprehensive set of Marathon Training Plans designed to guide you through your training, with 3 different levels. All of this information is available free, if you choose, so browse the 26.2 Marathon website at your leisure.
Please note, there is also a Half Marathon Training Plan available as well. We will also develop a 5 and 10 km Training Plan and include them in the TIPS section of our website.
