2015 RACE WEEKEND:
Saturday, October 31 & Sunday, November 1, 2015
We've added a new category - Half Marathon Relay!
The Half Marathon Relay - Only the first 50 teams will be accepted. $100/team. The first team member will start the race and run to the transfer point near the end of the Red Hill Expressway. The second team member will board a bus at the start line and be taken to the transfer point. After the second team member takes over the run, the first member will be taken by bus to the finish line.

Thank you to everyone who participated in this year's event. In spite of cold, rain and even snow on Saturday, the 1K, 5K and 10K racers had such a great time. We are very proud of their perseverance, great times and great effort!
Sunday provided us with a sunny, lovely day for running. We had over 3000 runners, many of whom ran a "Personal Best" and/or "Boston Qualifier".
Congratulations to everyone. No matter the distance or the time, you ran or walked with pride and helped us raise tens of thousands of dollars for so many great charities. THANK YOU!

TO ALL OUR SPONSORS AND VOLUNTEERS
We are grateful to our many sponsors, and volunteers who make this event possible. The Hamilton Marathon has become a venue for countless charities to host a fun and fabulous week-end of fun runs and extreme challenges. Families come to participate in the 1k, 5k, and 10k, but without the sponsors and volunteers we could never pull it off. So hats off to the countless number of volunteers and sponsors who stand behind us each year to support our event and our many charities.
