Water stations will be at the 3 and 8 kilometer marks, as well as at the finish line. Click here to print the route. Participants must be at least 12 years of age in 2019.

For our most little runners we have the 1km, 3-5 years old race. Safety is ensured throughout the length of this route, allowing your children to run the full distance on their own. While it is possible to accompany them on the route (you must sign up as an adult companion), the itinerary is conceived so that you may easily follow and encourage them from the sidelines.

The Family & Friends Challenge (11:30 AM start)
This relay race is open to 4 members of a family or group of friends, from 5 years of age and up. There is no age limit for adults! This race is specifically designed to allow you to have fun! The race consists of 4 X the 500 m course (relay). Each runner must make a distance of 500 m alone (unaccompanied). It is an opportunity to excel while having fun with family or friends. The team can be 4 of the same family, from grandparents to grandchildren, or friends, whatever your age. Each participant will run 500 meters on a 2 km relay. How do you win? By running fast! The Foulée promotes perseverance, creativity, participation. This year, there will be three first places: the fastest team, the team with the biggest age difference between the participants, the team with a certain « grain of madness ». So, from the oldest to the youngest, from the fastest to the craziest, you are expected to show your top form!
