There's a buzz of excitement throughout the City of Surrey and the running community as athletes of all ages and fitness abilities prepare for the 2nd Annual Surrey International World Music Marathon, presented by Central City.
An event that's built for everyone, from committed marathoners to novice runners, this year's Marathon takes place Sunday, September 29th and features a Full Marathon, Half Marathon, Prospera Credit Union Relay, Mayors 5K Run/Walk and the Century Group Kids Fun Run. It's all about fun, fitness and community spirit as runners lace up for Surrey's most innovative sporting event this season.
2013 will see a change in the route from the inaugural event in 2012, with the Full and Half Marathons winding their way through the spectacular scenery of Surrey's majestic Green Timbers Urban Forest. This re-design provides more performance areas and uniquely themed 'cultural music miles' than last year and allows participants of each event to fully experience the incredible music, dancing, and festivities along the route.
"Last year's Marathon was a great success thanks to the incredible support of volunteers and participants, and as we head into this year's event we're excited about the level of enthusiasm and community involvement we've received," says Marathon Chair Elizabeth Model.
Whether you're looking to kick-start your fall fitness program, or just hoping to get outdoors with friends and family, there's still time to register.
