Where can I park?

Participants are invited to park at these locations: Bourget Community Center (19 Lavigne Street, Bourget), St. Francis Xavier Catholic High School (1235 Russell Road, Hammond) and Sacré-Coeur Church in Bourget. Please note that Lavigne and Marcil streets will be closed to traffic and parking will be prohibited on these streets. Three shuttles will assure transportation from these three locations to the gathering area. The cost of the shuttle is included in the registration fee.

What do I need to know for the day of the event?

Please arrive one (1) hour before your departure time to allow enough time for you to park, take the shuttle, complete the disclaimer form, register and participate in the warm-up session.

We suggest you leave your bag in our bag check, which is under supervision, at a cost of $ 2. This will save you having to return by shuttle to your car to collect your items.

You are also advised to bring money for a meal or snack. You can also bring a towel for you to dry after you rinse at our cleaning station or to put on your car seat.

Who is the Special Needs Start time aimed to ?

The Special Needs Start time is aimed to participants with either physical or intellectual disabilities, as long as they can walk on the trails in the woods. No obstacles are mandatory, so any participant can simply walk next to the obstacles that are too difficult.

We also offer the accompanying person to register at no cost. Please contact the organizer to make arrangements.

If it rains, will the race still take place?

A Coureur des bois is ready for any circumstance. If it rains, please dress accordingly. Our obstacles placed in this natural environment will challenge you rain or shine.

Must children registered for the Explorers Course (3 km) accompanied during the race?

Children between 6 and 9 years old must be accompanied by an adult for the course. The accompanying adult must also register and pay the registration fee to run with their children, unless they have already registered to the Adventurers Course (6 km).

Note that an adult may supervise more than one child during the race.

Children between 10 to 13 years old are not required to be accompanied by an adult to complete the course.

My child, who is under 14 years old, would like to do the Adventurers course (6 Km). Is it possible?

No. The ADVENTURERS Course (6 km) has been designed for people 14 years and older. Be assured that the EXPLORERS Course (3 km) will challenge your child. Unlike other races your child might have participated in, there will be obstacles tailored to their age group.

I am over 14 and I do not think I can complete the ADVENTURERS course of 6 Km. Can I register to the EXPLORERS 3 km course?

Absolutely! Do not hesitate to sign up, this course is for people of all ages. We are convinced that the EXPLORERS Course will offer plenty of challenges that you’ll enjoy undertaking.

If I cannot attend the event, can I get a refund?

Unfortunately, we do not offer refunds under any circumstances. However, if you can not attend an event, you are able to transfer your registration to another participant. The transfer will have to take place at least three days prior to the race.
