RunNB Provincial Championships

In 2006, Run NB introduced the Provincial Championships event program to encourage runners to participate in different events and crown a champion in each of the 5 distances: Marathon, half marathon, 10km, 5 miles, and 5 km. The male and female winners of each event will be declared the winners of the Provincial Championships.

Criteria of a Championship race

The following are mandatory criteria to enable a RunNB event to receive the Championship designation. The next call for applications to become a Championship race for the 2023 season will go out in the Fall of 2022 (will be announced on our social media).

  1. The course must be certified by Athletics Canada. You can view a full list of certified courses here: http://www.acroad.ca/Directors/CourseMeasurement/CertifiedCourses/. For more information on how to certify your course, please consult the Race Director’s Guide available here: https://www.runnb.ca/documents/Race-Directors-Guide-for-Run-NB-for-2018.pdf. Athletics Canada Certification is valid for 10 years. Should a course be changed in any way from one year to the next, it must be re-measured, and a new certification issued.
  2. RunNB will provide medals for the top three male and females of Championship races with Championship medals. RunNB will coordinate with the Race Director to send them the medals before the race.
