Start time: 8:45 a.m.
IAAF Certification #: CAN-2017-080

I would be participating in my 12th Marathon: The Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon which would be taking place in Toronto, Canada. This Marathon is going to be one of a kind for me because of the cold weather in Toronto right now but like all the previous marathons have participated in, it is about the thrill, the fun, the pain, the endurance and dedication to reach the finish line.

Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon 2018 Schedule

  • The start horn will sound at 8:45 a.m. and the course will remain open until 3:15 p.m.
  • The course time limit for the marathon will be 6 hours, which will begin after the last wave of participants crosses the start line at 9:10 a.m.
  • You will be required to maintain an average pace of 8 ½ minutes per kilometer.
  • Participants who are unable to reach the 30km mark at Lakeshore Blvd and Coxwell Ave by 1:30 p.m. will be short-turned and will not have the opportunity to complete the marathon distance.
  • Participants who are unable to reach the 39km mark at Eastern Ave and Broadview Ave by 2:45 p.m. will be moved off the course.  The roads will be reopened at this time and if you choose to continue on the sidewalk, you will be doing so as a pedestrian without any further race support.

Looking forward to participating in the Toronto Waterfront Marathon as this is my first Marathon outside of the African Continent and I can’t wait to experience the race. The weather might be a challenge it is going to be overcomed as:

There’s No Bad Weather, Only Bad Clothes!

See you at the Marathon….Don’t Settle: Live with Passion.
