​Marathon SSQ de Longueuil: A fresh start for the second edition!

Given the resounding success of last year’s event, with more than 3,000 runners participating, the Marathon SSQ de Longueuil will be back again on May 21, 2017. Everyone is cordially invited to sign up now for this springtime activity, which will have its fair share of novelty this year.

New Site, New Circuit

The Marathon SSQ de Longueuil is back with new circuits and a new site, which will be even better suited to the needs of the runners. The start and finish lines will be at the Colisée Jean-Béliveau, an easily accessible site located downtown.

There are 1 km, 3 km, 5 km, 10 km, 21.1 km and 42.2 km distances. The 42.2 km run will actually be 2 laps of the 21.1 km circuit, which winds through urban areas and natural environments on flat, quick surfaces. This marathon is actually one of the Canadian qualifiers for the Boston Marathon. New this year is a 3-km circuit that can be walked or run.

The Marathon SSQ de Longueuil is organized by Les Courses Thématiques, in collaboration with SSQ Financial Group and the City of Longueuil. For more information or to sign up, go to marathon-longueuil.com.
