Maine to Get a New Marathon
Maine will have a new international marathon option in June 2013 when the inaugural Bay of Fundy marathon debuts in Lubec and Campobello Island, New Brunswick.
Maine currently has three marathons — in Portland, at Sugarloaf, and on Mount Desert Island.
Scheduled for Sunday, June 23, 2013, the first Bay of Fundy marathon event will have a route that crosses the FDR Bridge and the border into Canada, according to the Bangor Daily News. The marathon will start at the West Quoddy Station parking lot, continue for seven miles to the FDR bridge, then follow an 18-mile loop into Campobello and back over the bridge and finish on Water Street at the Lubec town landing.
There also will be a 10K race.
