The inaugural Bay of Fundy International Marathon in Lubec, Maine, will be
unique—uwith six miles in the United States and 20 miles in Canada. It is one of three
marathons to cross the United States-Canada border, and the only one in which runners
cross the border twice. The marathon’s planners believe that within five years, they can
attract as many as 2,000 runners to their rural, remote region. The marathon’s planners
are equally as ambitious in their aspirations that the marathon become transformational
for the poor community of Lubec.
