If you're one of those people who has "run a marathon" scribbled on their list of things to do before they die, then this upcoming weekend is your chance to cross it off that list for good. The annual Edmonton Marathon, sponsored by Intact Insurance, will start and end at City Hall in downtown Edmonton, wil the full (23 miles/ 42km) and half (9.5 miles/ 21.1km) runs on Sunday. The marathon is just part of the 2009 Intact River Valley Family Festival, which also includes the Family Festival Expo, the Horses at Northlands Park Kids Marathon Mile, and the 5K Fun Run/Walk. You can register for the event here.
