At this time, we are transitioning The Maple Run to a fully virtual event for 2020. 

What does this mean?

Participants now have the option to participate in the virtual run or donate their registration. 

You MUST select the virtual race option by APRIL 13th to receive your race day swag, otherwise your registration fees will automatically be donated. 

Race fees are non-refundable per the original race waiver.

The Maple Run

Celebrate the End of Winter in the North Country
April 18, 2020
8:30 am

As the only half marathon in St. Lawrence County, The Maple Run aims to be both fun and festive. We run to celebrate the end of Winter and support local cross country running programs. 

Join us on a scenic, fast course along St. Lawrence county roads, by St. Lawrence University's campus and through the village of Canton. Run fast, turn left.

Work Hard, Play Hard

You're going to train all winter for a half marathon or 5K in Spring- you deserve some kudos and great gear. Our finisher medals are custom designed for The Maple Run (half marathon participants only), and each entrant receives a crew neck sweatshirt and local maple syrup for their toils. 

To make training more fun in the winter months the Bucc Wild Run Club offers a free group run on Tuesdays, 6pm in Canton, NY. More information here

  • Can I run with a stroller or my dog?

We cannot allow strollers or dogs on either of the courses. This is for your safety and the safety of other participants and is included in the participant waiver.

Yes- please print and mail this form with payment. Please know that registering online makes your registration immediately compatible with the timing device- no middle man to misspell your name or misprint your age. 

  • What is the time limit for the Half Marathon?

The course will be open for 4 hours. This is a fair limit given the timing officials, small group of EMS volunteers, and law enforcement vehicles who are giving their time to make this event a success. 

  • How do I become a sponsor?

Email the Race Director right away!

  • Can I register the day of the race?

Both races have a capacity limit. If race day registration is available it will be limited.
