Virtual Run SSQ Quebec City Marathon - Race day

Participants

Last update: July 30th, 2020

My step by step: 

  1. I register for free at the distance of my choice by Race Roster here.
  2. I receive my bib by email to print and wear on the day of my race.
  3. I download the Motigo application and ask my friends and family to record messages of encouragement for me.
  4. A few days before my race, I receive a unique link from Sportstats.
  5. Before the start of my race, I make sure to turn on my race app, my music, and especially my Motigo app.
  6. I run my race, in my neighborhood, but also simultaneously with thousands of runners.
  7. I have completed my CHALLENGE!
  8. I enter my result on the Sportstats registration platform using the unique link I received by email (step 4), I receive my personalized virtual certificate as a souvenir, my virtual race bag and I add the Facebook filter to my profile picture.
  9. I had a unique running experience and I am registering for the 2021 race!

Read below for more information on these steps.

BIB

Following registration, each runner will receive an email with a link to download and print their bib. Runners will thus be able to live the real experience as faithfully as possible and show their bib number during their race. Don’t hesitate to send your encouragement if you meet another runner with his/her bib!

Motigo

With this year virtual run, we will capitalize on Motigo. Thanks to the Motigo audio message app, participants will be immersed in the ambiance of a real race: the pre-race excitement, the countdown, and that familiar jolt of anticipation just before the starting gun goes off. Runners will experience the same rush they feel at the start of every other race. Je Cours Qc also plans to support runners along the way by streaming music, tips, and the inspiring sound of cheers from the crowd as they approach the finish line.

We still encourage runners to ask for personal support from family and friends, so that they still get the whole experience.

Details on download and information on how to register audio cheers will come soon.

Results + Sportstats

A few days before your challenge, you will receive a unique link from Sportstats that will allow you to enter your race result once your challenge is over. To do so, when you arrive on the Sportstats platform, you will need to create an account. Once created, you will be able to enter your race result. You will be able to enter the data manually, attach a GPX file or log in to your STRAVA account and select the race in question.

The deadline to enter your results from your unique Sportstats link is October 5 at 10am.

Once the platform is closed, Sportstats will be able to compile the results and provide a table of results for all participants. You will then be able to see your ranking. These results will also be available from our website and will be sent to you by email.

You can download as many results as you want. The app will only take the last one submit and not the best time.

There’s an exception for the kids race, parents will need to complete a form to enter the kid result. The ranking for the kids race will go out during the week following October 4th.

Time / GPS

To measure your run during your challenge, use the application you are used to, whether it is STRAVA, Runkeeper, Nike Run, or your sports watch. Be sure to start it before your run.

As a souvenir of their race, all runners will receive a virtual certificate with their distance, time, and the date of the event. There will even be a filter participants can use on their Facebook profile photo to proudly show off their achievement.
