Vintage Shots From Rock ‘n’ Roll Montreal

The Rock ‘n’ Roll Montreal Oasis Marathon and 1/2 started way back in 1979 as the Montreal Marathon. After going on hiatus from 1990 to 2003, the race re-emerged in 2004 and this weekend will celebrate its 25th running.

As part of that celebration, let’s take a nostalgic look at some of the earliest Montreal Marathon races, in photos. Most of these photos are from the first five editions of the race, from 1979-83, giving a charming glimpse at the sport of running some 35 years ago.
