Two countries. One bridge. Four lighthouses. Massive tides. Scenic fishing villages. Bald eagles. Seals. Sometimes whales. Enthusiastic community support. Lobsters,clams, and other seafood. Awards and medals handcrafted by local artists. A non-profit community organized event (we have lots of retired race directors) in one of the USA and Canada's quietest and most scenic corners. We offer a marathon, half marathon, and 10K, each capped at 350 runners. Race is a Boston qualifier and USATF Certified.

Event Start Location
The cliffs at West Quoddy Head - most easterly point in the continental USA.

Course Description
Start on the cliffs at West Quoddy Head and run into Canada over the Roosevelt Memorial bridge over some of the famous Bay of Fundy tides. Marathoners brave the roller coaster hills to go the full length of Campobello to East Quoddy Head, and back. Half marathoners take a tour of the Roosevelt cottage in the Roosevelt-Campobello International Park. The 10K remains entirely in the US and is flat and fast with a few little surprise hills. All races finish on the Lubec waterfront.

Awards
Awards and medals handcrafted by local artists.
