Run/walk pace bunnies follow a cadence of ten minutes running to one minute walking.

Bus Boxes In two places on the course, participants in the Half-Marathon presented by WKND 91.9 FM and the SSQ Insurance Marathon will enter zones called bus boxes. These boxes are used to temporarily divert runners onto an alternative section of the course and allow vehicle traffic to keep moving. The alternative sections are the same length as the original sections and will not affect the distance covered.
Bus boxes have proven to be effective solutions for running events in urban environments around the world, including the San Francisco Rock’n’Roll Half-Marathon. Watch out for our flaggers directing runners into bus boxes on the course near Charest Boulevard and Quai Saint-André Street; they’ll make sure you go the right way.

Checkpoints

If you do not want to take your car, you can be dropped off at the The Québec City Convention Centre on St-Joachim or on Turnbull between René-Levesque and Crémazie. The locations are close to the start line.

Kilometre markers

Kilometre markers will be placed every kilometre in ascending distance order.
