(Voir le bas de la page pour changer en français) Welcome to the second annual edition of La Baie Run! Funds will be donated to the Hawkesbury General Hospital Foundation. In light of the covid-19 pandemic, this year's race will take place as a virtual event. Participants will be able to achieve their personal goals by running or walking their own race, anywhere and anytime between July 18th and July 25th, 2020! There will be the option to complete either a 1km, a 5km, a 10km, a half marathon, a full marathon, or a 72km ultra course, all while respecting the social-distancing recommendations set at that time. See details below on how you can even complete multiple races over the course of the week!
