The Edge to Edge Marathon ~ Three Events to Choose From
The challenging Edge to Edge Marathon course starts and ends in Ucluelet. Competitors will experience a variety of different terrains including the hard packed gravel of the Wild Pacific Trail and the undulating paved pathway towards Port Albion.
The Half Marathon also follows the Wild Pacific Trail and takes in amazing views of the open ocean, rocky bluffs and the rainforest along the route. When the Marathon heads off towards Port Albion, the Half Marathon returns to Ucluelet to finish in the Village Green.
Each person in the Team Relay runs approximately 10km of the Marathon route. The first two legs take in the Wild Pacific Trail and Ucluelet, with the last two covering the paved paths towards Port Albion and back to the finish at the Village Green.
