I give the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon an “A” grade. Basically maintain in thoughts the “Bad” aspects so that you are ready for them,http://fusklappen.se/freerunsportshoes.php.

Good: Relatively plentiful along the course
Bad: The usual (stinky)

Good: Quite supportive (often yelled names on bibs)
Bad: Relatively sparse

Good: A lot of arches of balloons close to the finish area
Bad: Balloons near finish had been relatively far from the actual finish, which brought on several racers to sprint too soon
Bad: Lengthy walk to get medal soon after crossing finish line (no instant reward)
Bad: Numerous medals simply handed to finishers as an alternative to put more than their heads



Good: Really pretty and picturesque inside the very first half
Good: Beautiful weather
Good: Quite flat
Bad: Industrial and windy (really close to Lake Ontario) within the second half

Good: Water bottles and foil body-warmers dispensed correct soon after medals to finishers
Bad: Minimal food (bananas and bagels), with Lassonde Oasis fruit juices as the vibrant exception

Start line

Water-station people

Good: Raised money — probably about $45,000 — for three charities
Bad: Not common, that is most likely why I saw some racers on the course operating with their drop bags

Good: Effective start off (~10-12 minutes total for marathoners + half-marathoners together)
Good: Color-coded staging based on expected paces
Good: Close to the bag-drop location (Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel,http://whiskystore.ro/easyfreerun.php, overlooking Nathan Phillips Square)
Bad: Hard to hear start off gun from the back of the pack

Spectator turnout

$2 Charge to leave a bag in the bag drop

Good: Blocked automobile and truck drivers well
Bad: Didn’t block pedestrian course-crossers well
Bad: Didn’t quit “damn” bicyclists

Water stations

Good: Hefty, gold(?)-plated medal for marathon finishers
Bad (to some): Half-size medal on shorter ribbon for half-marathoners
Bad: From a distance, 5K medal and ribbon looked a lot more comparable to marathon medal and ribbon than to half-marathon medal and ribbon


Good: Well-organized
Good: Open until 8 p.m,http://www2.kemix.fr/livimport.php. on Friday
Bad: Seemed little for 15,000 racers
Bad: Held at Direct Power Centre, far from start/finish line, requiring high-priced taxi or extended public-transit ride for out-of-towners staying close to start/finish line
Bad: Really little memorabilia for sale beyond the Brooks location,http://www.lbruning.com/shop/bestfreerun4.php, which felt as if it were portion of the packet-pickup chute and consequently inaccessible once exited
Bad: Not sufficient sponsors


Good: Heavily manned; trustworthy pattern of Gatorade 1st, water second (with person with public-address technique to announce the 1 exception)
Bad: No food (no gels,, and so on.)

Good: Cheered racers onward
Bad: No “You’re welcome!” for “Thank you!”

I completed the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon on 26 September 2010. The climate was beautiful, I set a brand new individual record (PR), and it was one of my favorite marathons to date. Here is my review of the great and poor aspects of the 2010 event.
