If you want to see (not run on) rolling hills and picture-perfect scenery, consider the GoodLife Fitness Victoria Marathon in Victoria, BC, which showcases Canada's natural beauty. The seaside route winds along the southern tip of the island, with the Olympic Mountain range visible in the distance. The course also gives runners a glimpse of city sights like the BC legislative buildings, Ogden Point, Beacon Hill Park, and the statue of Terry Fox at Mile '0.'
Though the Victoria Marathon is a Boston Marathon qualifier, the flat route is ideal for beginner runners. The marathon is also mindful of excessive crowding: only 4,000 will be allowed to participate in the marathon (and 6,800 for the half), so be sure to sign up early to claim your spot.
