The 2018 Running Room Half Marathon is one of the most challenging and satisfying courses in Atlantic Canada. Starting at the Port of Saint John’s Diamond Jubilee Cruise Terminal runners will find themselves following along the Saint John Harbour and river taking in such famous sites as the Harbour Passage, Reversing Falls and views of the Bay of Fundy coastline. The most breathtaking views will appear at km 17 (mile 11) when runners are granted permission to cross the 1.6 km (1 mile) long Harbour Bridge back to City Centre -this is the only time pedestrians are permitted to cross the Harbour Bridge.
