Recognition for 65 and Over

Our recognition podium for 65 and over aims to applaud the remarkable performances of runners who will place in the top 3 of the following age categories: 65-69 years, 70-74 years, 75-79 years, as well as 80 years and older. They will receive a digital photo in a personalized Je Cours Qc frame to immortalize this great achievement.

Track runners

It will be possible via the Sportstats application to follow a runner in real time.

Snacks will be provided for all participants in the race finish area.

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

 

We would like to draw your attention to a unique feature of the new 100% Quebec route for the 21.1 km and 42.2 km Beneva events. At 4 places on the course as runners, you will cross traffic boxes:

  • The Quai Saint-André
  • 1st Avenue (opposite 10th Street)
  • 18th street

These boxes are used to temporarily change the direction of your race in order to allow the passage of vehicles and thus ensure the fluidity of automobile traffic.
These traffic boxes do not affect your distance traveled. They simply divert you to an alternative section of equal and same length as the original section.
This method represents an effective solution to the holding of marathons in large urban centres.
Be careful when approaching these locations, signal agents will be on hand to direct you to the traffic boxes. Listen to them, it’s very simple and you’ll be fine!

bus box animation

Runners and walkers who fail to reach the following checkpoints before the time limit will be disqualified from the race:

  • Checkpoint at kilometer 26 of the 42.2km at 12:10 PM
  • Checkpoint at kilometer 32 of the 42.2km at 1:00 PM
  • Checkpoint at kilometer 36 of the 42.2km at 1:30 PM
  • Checkpoint at kilometer 39 of the 42.2km at 2:00 PM

 

The participants have 6 hours to complete the 42.2 km race.

There’s a total of 12 000 places available for all races of this event.

Headphone use

Please note that Athlétisme Québec does not recommend wearing headphones on the runners’ course. If you wish to run with music, you must be able to hear outside sounds such as a runner asking you to let them pass, a police officer giving you instructions or a volunteer giving you directions. Your safety and that of other participants and volunteers is at stake.
