The Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon is an annual marathon held in Toronto, Ontario, Canada in October. The race day also includes a half marathon and 5 km race.

The race has quickly become an elite level marathon and is one of just four IAAF Gold Label Road Races in North America.[1] At the 2013 edition of the race, race winner Deressa Chimsa broke the men's course record with the fastest marathon ever recorded on Canadian soil.[2] In the 2011 edition of the race, race winner Koren Jelela Yal broke the women's course record with the fastest marathon ever recorded on Canada soil.

The Waterfront Marathon is not the only Toronto Marathon. The smaller GoodLife Fitness Toronto Marathon, which used to be held three weeks later in October, is held on the first Sunday in May.
