About the PEI Marathon

 

The 18th annual Prince Edward Island Marathon supporting Canadian Mental Health Association – PEI weekend is October 14th – 16th, 2022. The route for the Full Marathon takes runners through the beautiful fall colours on PEI and is a Boston Qualifier.

What is the weather like in Charlottetown in mid October?

The surrounding waters of the Gulf of St. Lawrence to the north and the Northumberland Strait to the south moderate the Island’s weather. Early autumn in the Island is characterized as clear and bright. Mornings are usually cool, while afternoons can be quite warm. Typically, the weather on race day has been between 5 – 15°C.

Can I use the PEI Marathon to qualify for Boston?

Yes, you can use the PEI Marathon’s Full Marathon to qualify for the Boston Marathon. The course is a certified Boston Marathon qualifier. 

Gun vs Chip Timing – What’s the Difference?

Official Time or Gun Time is the time from when the race starts (gun/horn goes off) to when you cross the finish line mat (a chip records your personal finish time). Official Time is used by organizations like IAAF, Athletics Canada, USATF, and AIMS and International Awards standards.
Official Time is important for competitive runners – that’s why they like to be right up front. They can keep an eye on each other from the word go!

Chip time – think of it as your own personal time. Chip time starts when you cross the mat and activate your chip, and it stops when you cross the finish line mat. It helps when there are a few thousand people ahead of you. You can find out your exact walking or running time.

Are participant massages available?

No, there will be no massages available for 2022. 

What events are specifically for walkers?

We have many events which are in for walkers only including:

  • Half Marathon Walk
  • 10K Walk
  • 5K Walk

All walkers will be timed and ranked according to age/sex categories. When registered in a walking category please keep in mind that running/jogging is not permitted and will result in disqualification. It is permitted to walk in a running category but you CANNOT RUN if entered in a walking category.

What are the routes like?

The routes can be described as mainly flat and fast. In designing the full marathon route, we wanted to let runners sample the different terrains and vistas the Island has to offer. Marathoners will be running from Prince Edward Island National Park on the north shore of the Island to the capital city, Charlottetown on the south shore. Half-marathoner, 10K and 5K participants will start their race in downtown Charlottetown making a loop through the city. Province House National Historic Site will beckon all runners and walkers to the finish line.

During the race is there a secure location I can leave my personal belongings?

Baggage check will only be available this year for Marathon participants. More details to follow as the event gets closer.  

Is there medical support during the race?

Yes, there is on-site medical support, via personnel and vehicle support, both throughout the course and at the finish line. Each year, we continue to enhance the level of medical support provided to ensure your health and safety.

Should I get Travel Insurance?

We do recommend that if you are travelling from out-of-province, that you obtain your own travel insurance to cover additional medical expenses, should you incur any.

I would like to volunteer, how do I register?

We require around 300 volunteers to make the Marathon Weekend a success. Please click the following link to sign up Volunteer Registration (opening soon).

What events are youth eligible to participate in?

The Kids For Trot, on Saturday, October 15th is a free & fun event. It is 400m (ages 0-6) and 800m (ages 7-14) run around the UPEI Alumni Canada Games Place – Track for ages 0 – 14. The 5K Run & Walk takes place on Saturday, October 15th at the same start line as the 10K. Youth can register for the other categories as long as a parent or guardian will be running with them (as a registered participant) and sign the child’s registration form.

Will there be parking available at the start line? At the finish line?

What do the PEI Marathon proceeds go towards?

The PEI Marathon is a non-profit event that takes all the proceeds and puts them right back into the event to make it bigger and better for the next year. The PEI Marathon has helped local groups raise over $50,000 through various fundraising initiatives.

The size you ordered with your registration is the only size we can pass out until Saturday, October 15th at 6:00pm. After that, you can switch to a different size depending on availability.

Is there a cut off time for the Marathon course?

There is no official cut off time, however, traffic control, health and safety volunteers, and race officials will start to vacate the course as the last runner passes by or six (6) hours after the start, whichever comes first. Anyone who continues to run on the course after the six (6) hour time limit will be doing so at his/her own risk.
