Minimum age for participation

For security purposes and following the recommendation of the Fédération Québécoise d’Athlétisme, we do not recommend that children under 11 years old participate in the 5K and 10K races in a competitive context. If someone under 11 would like to participate to one of these distances, it is the parents’ responsibility to ensure their child has the required fitness level and adequate training to finish the race, therefore reducing the risk of injuries or fainting. For this reason, all participants aged 19 and less will be considered as part of one same category for the medal presentation.

For the 21.1 K-course, also following the Fédération québécoise d’athlétisme’s recommendation, we strictly forbid the participation of children under 14 years old. Because youth’s security is a critical issue for our organisation, we will strictly implement this rule. Therefore, participants under 14 will automatically be disqualified. For this reason, all participants aged 19 and less will be considered as part of one same category for the medal presentation.
