2018 Ordinary Marathon

The Ordinary Marathon is a virtual race organized by the communities of Run, Heifer, Run! and  Ordinary Marathoner.  It is taking place from April 27 – May 6, 2018.  The goal is to make your best effort to run as many miles over those ten days as you can.  Does this mean you have to run a complete 26.2 mile marathon in that time?  No, of course not.   We want you to celebrate along with us and the rest of the running community by getting out there, crushing miles and sharing your stories on the roads and trails through our Facebook Page and/or Twitter Feed.  While you can certainly run on your own, running is so much more fun with a group.  Either way, we love seeing your pictures and watching your triumphs.

April 23, 2018: Registration for this race has closed. Next week you will be able to log in and record your distance ran during race week.

Did Not do the 26.2 that I wanted.. No Excuses.. I just didn't make it a Priority. But I did put in some mileage :-) The 6 Miles on Saturday was Amazing.. It was my 1st trail run.. I see many many more in my Future :-)

What a great event and it was awesome to see everyone participate in every way (every step counts). Thank you to all for sharing your stories

George Sevick

I thought this was a multi day event but I can’t figure out how to upload multiple pictures for proof and more than one run. I added up 3 runs and uploaded two pictures.

Walk from bridge terminal to work, with a side trip down to the waterfront to see the massive cruise ship in Halifax Harbour right now.

Angela Fillmore

I wanted to do more to support the Ordinary Marathon, but my foot wouldn't allow me to do so.
