Miles With The Giant Race Gets Certification

Organizers of the Miles With The Giant Marathon have earned Boston Certification with Athletics Canada. The announcement was made today and means anyone running the full marathon, half-marathon, 10 and 5 kilometre events can have their times used as a qualifier for larger races such as the Boston Marathon. Chair Barry Streib says this year's race route will feature some of Thunder Bay's most scenic trails and streets including Lakehead University and Confederation College campuses, Chapples and Centennial Park as well as Boulevard Lake. Early bird race registration ends at midnight tomorrow.
