| 1 Thunder Bay Marathon - Miles with the Giant
The 13.1 mile course is excellent. Doing the course twice is nice because there is a greater concentration of spectators and your family/friends don't have to drive around too much to do their spectating. You get to high five your running friends. There are hills but they are little. Great scenery and excellent volunteer support. Friendly city! I did my PB here. It's a small marathon, so they actually put the medal on you, you're a somebody. I did 3:17 and came in 7th place! I would have been 5th place if the Kenyans weren't there. I actually got to meet the folks from Kenya which was an honour. Anyways, I highly recommend it, it's my 8th marathon, and it's my favourite one so far.
