Cape Breton Fiddlers Marathon

The Cape Breton Fiddlers Marathon is located on the beautiful island of Cape Breton, along Sydney's waterfront.  Known for its "Giant Fiddle", Sydney is full of vibrant, friendly runners who will welcome you with a smile. This flat, paved course runs along Sydney's downtown waterfront and serves as a Boston Marathon qualifying race. Runners will be joined by some of Cape Breton's talented musicians to provide encouragement along the way.

On September 7th participants can take part in the Fiddlers Race Expo held at the Membertou Sports and Wellness Centre from 1:00-5:00 pm. Race kits can also be picked up at Membertou Sports and Wellness Centre between 1:00-5:00 pm. Online registration will be closed on September 4th at midnight. Registration is also available during the expo between 1:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m.

The pre-race pasta dinner will take place from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m (Tickets can be purchased during registration for a cost of $5).  Participants will receive a dry fit running shirt, and a one of a kind medal. The race will be professionally timed by Atlantic Chip Sport Timing.
