Celebrations are in order in Montreal this April as the popular Banque Scotia 21k de Montreal turns 10 years old.


Part of the outstanding Canada Running Series, the 21k de Montreal has become very popular with elite and recreational athletes alike. The half marathon takes place across the two islands of beautiful Parc Jean–Drapeau.


Those looking to spend a bit of extra time in Montreal will find no shortage of exciting things to do and magnificent things to see, as the city is loaded with all kinds of architectural, scenic, cultural and entertainment wonders. 


The incredible Notre Dame Basilica, Mont Royal, Old Montreal, the impressive Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and the Montreal Botanic Gardens are just a very small sample of some of the attractions the city has to offer.

Participants are encouraged to get involved with the Scotiabank Charity Challenge, a wonderful initiative from Scotiabank set up to support the community and local charities.


More than $700,000 was raised for charity in last year’s event, with organisers encouraging participants to get involved and get that number even higher this year.


Come celebrate a decade of Half Marathon running, and while you’re at it get lost in the wonderful city of Montreal this April.





Excitement is in the air as practicing feet are hitting the ground in anticipation of the 2015 edition of the Sydney Morning Herald Half Marathon.


Australia’s biggest and most renowned half marathon will once again take over the streets of central Sydney for a day of competitive running, fundraising and overall positive fitness vibes.


For runners interested in seeing world-famous landmarks as they run, the Sydney Morning Herald Half Marathon is, frankly, hard to beat.



Architectural heavy hitters such as the Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge are just part of the scenery runners will enjoy, as are the beautiful Royal Botanic Gardens and The Rocks historic precinct.


The SMH Half Marathon also caters for those runners not quite ready to take on the full 21.1km by including a relay option. The relay is for teams of two, with runner 1 tackling the first 6.5km before handing the relay wristband to runner 2 who then handles the final 14.5km of the race.


Entries for the SMH Half Marathon and Half Marathon Relay event fill up fast, so get yours in quick to make sure you’re part of another special day in Sydney this May!
