Have you ever participated in a Marathon? Maybe you have, but probably not in a Marathon crossing International borders. The Fundy Bay Marathon is going to start in Lubec and has a 10 mile course within the U.S. and a 26mile international course. The amazing part is that expectations estimated about 200 runners to participate, as this is the very first time this Marathon is arranged, but this coming weekend Campobello is going to be “invaded” by 800 runners from 37 States and 17 countries. With accompanying family and friends approx 5000 people will get into our area. Accommodations have been booked solidly all over southern New Brunswick and “downeast” Maine. There is not a bed to be had this weekend. Restaurants are going to be “packed” and we’ll probably see a traffic jam we’ve never had on Campobello. Talking to a neighbour who has lived here all his life he said that this will be the biggest crowd ever since the Queen Mother had been here in 1967 visiting the Roosevelt Campobello International Park.
Hopefully I can come back later with pictures of the event
