review of 2013 Age of Sail Marathon.   

0 / 5 Stars


If your looking for a "small" marathon with lots of community involvement, look no further. Wonderful views, great meal after.

Race Tips

This is an out and back with a few hills at the end. If you are looking for a course for a PB - this could be worth taking a look at.

Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

As this is a "small" field - you will have an excellent opportunity of having a "top" finish. This is also a Boston Qualifier - with only a few marathons left in the Maritimes to do.

Finish Time Equivalent

If you ran the New York City Marathon in 4:20:00, what would your time in the Boston Marathon be?
