Runners at the start line of the 2012 Surrey International Music Marathon. This year's event is less than two months away.

58 days until the 2013 Surrey International World Music Marathon

Second annual event takes place Sept. 29 in City Centre.

Runners of all ages and abilities are getting ready for the 2013 Surrey International World Music Marathon, presented by Central City, as the second annual event is slated to hit the streets of the city on Sept. 29.

An event that’s built for everyone from committed marathoners to novice runners, the Surrey World Music Marathon  includes events for every age and fitness level.

Offering a full, half, 5K walk/run, relay and kids run, the Surrey International World Music Marathon is all about fun and fitness with unique themed “cultural miles” featuring world music along the route. This year will also see a change in the route from the inaugural event in 2012, with the full and half marathons winding their way through the spectacular scenery of Surrey’s Green Timbers Urban Forest.

“This year’s event is shaping up to be an incredibly positive event, building on the success of the inaugural marathon in 2012,” says Marathon Chair Elizabeth Model.

“Our participants felt that the race truly reflected the amazing energy and enthusiasm of our city, and we believe that the enhanced route through one of the most beautiful urban parks in the region will only serve to inspire participants in the 2013 event.”
