This is by far the most scenic marathon I have ever run. It is certainly not the kind of run where fast times are set though. The trails are challenging but the scenery more than makes up for the difficulty. This event is highly recommended and it is only 200 km from Sault Ste. Marie. It is important to register early since the marathon field is limited to 300 entrants. The event will probably fill up earlier every year.
