Gopher Attack Marathon
This boutique marathon, the fastest marathon course in Western Canada, is the earliest of the only three major Saskatchewan marathons. It comprises three distances, the marathon, half marathon, and a 10km event! The event is a fund raiser for the MS Society of Canada.
The flat, fast course, laid out through the scenic Wascana Park and University of Regina campus, is a 21.1 km Loop certified by Athletics Canada/Run Canada as accurate according to standards of the Road Running Technical Council. Marathon competitors who meet the Boston qualifying times will be eligible to register for Boston in the following year. This fast, flat course is known for the high percentage of finishers who qualify for Boston.
