Marathon Hall of Shame

It's hard to criticize any marathon as they are a tremendous undertaking to organize. Sometimes, however, we have to say something in order to get improvements and protect the integrity of the sport. After all, we are paying upwards of $100 to run these things!

There are currently no marathons listed here. The list will be updated as needed.

Vancouver Marathon

March 2016 Update: Vancouver marathon announces it will correct the run stoppages this year. It has been removed from this list. It is a good run and worth doing without the stoppages. Links to the former stoppages are below.
