FULL SCHEDULE OF EVENTS


The Queen City Marathon was conceived in the winter of 2000, when some local runners were doing a lap of Wascana Lake and discussing the fact that, of all the provincial captials in Canada, Regina was the only city that did not currently have a marathon event. From 1970 until 1983 an event known as the Molson Marathon had been held in Regina, but there had not been a marathon organized in Regina (also known as "the Queen City") since then.

The first Queen City Marathon took place on September 23rd, 2001, with the original start and finish line located at the Douglas Park Athletic Track. At the time, the race offered a full marathon, a marathon team relay and a kids mini-marathon event. A half marathon event wouldn't be part of the QCM until the following year. Race organizers optimistically hoped to attract 600 participants. They were pleasantly (albeit hectically) surprised when 1,275 participants showed up at the starting line that first race morning.

Today, the Queen City Marathon (QCM), a qualifying race for the Boston Marathon. is more than a race, it an amazing community event, which attracts participants from all across Saskatchewan, Canada, the United States, and around the world.
