OVERVIEW
The Marathon event will include a full marathon, a half marathon and a 10 km road race. These three events combined can welcome more than 1,200 participants.

We will be using the same course as the world-renowned Montréal International Marathon, which starts on the Jacques-Cartier Bridge, offering a splendid view of the city. This event will be one of the highlights of the Outgames sport programme and will take place on the last day of scheduled events

Wheelchair athletes may participate in the marathon, half-marathon and 10-km race events, which will take place on Friday, 4 August 2006 on a closed circuit. The course is located on Ile Notre-Dame at the Gilles-Villeneuve Formula 1 racetrack, a site as popular for major events as for recreational pursuits such as cycling or in-line skating. The site is in close proximity to downtown Montréal.

ORGANISING COMMITTEE

RULES
International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) rules will be used.

ANTI-DOPING POLICY
The 1st World Outgames endorses a healthy and fair approach to sports training and competition. Sport events in the 1st World Outgames are sanctioned by provincial, national, and in some cases, international sports governing bodies. In order to adhere to the rules of these sporting federations and to guarantee that the Outgames are run in a fair and just manner, GLISA and the Outgames have adopted the policy as set by the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES), and the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).

Consequently, all athletes competing in the 1st World Outgames must adhere to GLISA’s position on drugs in sport and may be required to undergo drug-testing. We encourage all participants to become familiar with this policy.
 
POLICY ON TRANSITIONED AND TRANSGENDER ATHLETES

The objective of the 1st World Outgames in this regard is to provide an experience where all athletes are able to compete in a safe and welcoming environment, without discrimination of any kind. Our priority is to find the appropriate balance to ensure that no person, regardless of their birth gender, is disadvantaged in athletic competition and at the same time that no person participating in the Outgames experiences discrimination.

GLISA and the 1st World Outgames have collaborated so as to develop a policy that reflects this balance. We encourage all participants, especially those who have identified themselves as ‘transgender’ in the registration process, to become familiar with this policy.

COMPETITION FORMAT
All events will start early in the morning. For health and safety reasons, there will be a five-hour 30 minutes time limit to complete the course for those running the full marathon distance.

Age categories are the same for both men and women, who will compete separately.
