The 39th annual Saskatchewan Marathon goes Sunday morning with organizers expecting more than 4,000 people.
“The volunteers make the race,” C95 Mornings Host, Shauna Foster said, whose ran in the 10km race the last seven years. “They’re always cheering you on with a huge smile.”
The races include a marathon (42km), half-marathon (21 km), 10 km, and 5 km races.
A pre-race ceremony is set for 7:15 a.m. with the big race on St Henry Ave next to Diefenbaker Park starting at 7:30 a.m.
“I love the race because nobody is judging you,” Foster said.
The 42-km marathon is a Boston Marathon qualifier if a certain time is hit in the respective age group.
The winner of the Saskatchewan Marathon gets $1,500.
The race means several road closures in the Exhibition Park neighbourhood Sunday.
