The City of Pointe-Claire is happy to announce that the Desjardins Pointe-Claire Half-Marathon will be held again this year on Sunday, June 18, on a varied course that will please experienced and novice running enthusiasts alike.
“We hope many residents will participate in this sports event intended for both high-level athletes and active families,” explains Mayor Trudeau. “It’s an opportunity to move, meet new people, and discover new places – while taking care of yourself and supporting a good cause.”.
Proceeds from the event will be donated to the Montreal Alzheimer Society to fund various programs supporting people with Alzheimer’s as well as their informal caregivers, family, and friends.
Runs of 1, 2, 5, 10 and 21 kilometres are planned for runners of all levels. The races start in Pointe-Claire Village on Du Bord-du-Lac – Lakeshore Road. Routes are varied and interesting, taking runners along streets and bike paths, through tunnels and parks, and along the shores of Lake Saint-Louis.
Each run ends in Pointe-Claire Village where people can discover the shops, have a meal or snack at a bistro or patio, relax near the water, enjoy a picnic in the park, or spend some time at the lake.
“Join us on Sunday, June 18, to support a great cause at an event for runners of all levels. It’s also a great opportunity to discover Pointe-Claire Village and its many attractions,” concludes Mayor Trudeau.
