Edge to Edge Marathon

Run once a year in the summertime, the Edge to Edge Marathon follows an undulating course from the town of Tofino to the village of Ucluelet, the perfect marathon distance. You won’t see the same scenery twice as you travel to your Ucluelet finish line.

For Solo Marathon Runners

The road between Tofino and Ucluelet is absolutely perfect for a marathon. With rolling hills and fresh ocean air, the scenery is spectacular as you wind your way down Vancouver Island’s Western coastline.

We suggest you read Rumon Carter’s full race course report before registering. The course is tough but beautiful. A truly rewarding experience for anyone hoping to test themselves against it.
