To find a course measurer in your area or contact Athletics Canada's Road Running Coordinator or your provincial/territorial branch.

Measurers can charge a variety of rates depending on the complexity and length of the course. Here are some guidelines of what you can expect from expert measurers:

5k or less $375 to $550
10k: $750 to $1000
Half Marathon $1250 to $1750
Marathon $2000 to $3000

In general, $60 to $100/km with a minimum of $375
