"The "Starbucks Hazel 5K" at the Mississauga Marathon was my first race a year ago. Since then, I have participated in 12 other races including your 10K race on Saturday and the 5K race at the Goodlife Toronto Marathon yesterday. I have to say, hands down, The Mississauga Marathon race experience is the best I have had yet (you totally BLEW the Toronto Marathon out of the water!) The race kits, expo, course, organization, volunteers, crowd support, photos and post race experience are THE BEST! For these (and many other) reasons, Mississauga will be my first ever FULL Marathon in 2014. Can't wait!!!" - Jennifer H., Mississauga, ON

"Yesterday I had the best race of my life! Mississauga Marathon, was AMAZING! From the expo, to the plethora of porta potties at the start, the SUPER AWESOME volunteers, the very cute officer at 16K and the post run grub! I ran a negative split and a PB, best of all I finished STRONG & with a SMILE on my face! Can't wait to run this AWESOME race again in 2013!" - Charmaine Broughton-Dunn (MarathonMom), Bracebridge, ON
"I spent most of my twenties running downtown Toronto races, including the Goodlife 10K. Now, (no longer in my twenties(o:), I live in Mississauga with my husband and three kids, and I tell you that nothing can compete with the picturesque scenery (yes, parts of Mississauga are really beautiful) as well as the community feeling of the Mississauga 10K/1/2 Marathon and Marathon. Last year, a fellow in Port Credit transported his entire living room along with his surround system outside to cheer runners on. This is a race worth marking your calendar for. Hope as many as possible join in." - Rachel P., Mississauga, ON
"The Mississauga Marathon will showcase Mississauga on the local, national and international stage. Not only will it promote tourism, it will promote our philosophy and our commitment to the health and well-being of our residents." - Mayor Hazel McCallion, 2004
