Two Marathons Too Many in Toronto

Running has become so popular that there is a fight... well, let's call it a "heated negotiation" going on between The Goodlife Fitness Toronto Marathon and Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon because of the dates that they are holding their marathons. However, the City Officials seem to be doing some instigating because both marathons have been coexisting for 20 years. The Toronto Marathon is scheduled for Sunday October 17th, 2010 and is in it's 33rd year. The Toronto Waterfront Marathon is scheduled for Sunday September 26th, 2010 and is in it's 21st year. The City wants Toronto to have one destination marathon. Although this "heated negotiation" puts an adverse spin on running and reminds us of the big business behind races, it also illustrates how much the sport, culture and running community has grown.
