5th Luc Gallant Marathon
Sunday, October 13th 2013
For many nature lovers, the fresh air of the season and the burst of fall colours are good incentives to hit the trails for a hike or a run. Add to that the opportunity to contribute to a great cause, and you`ve got yourself a perfect Thanksgiving weekend activity.
The race honours a young athlete from the area, Luc Gallant, well known for his successful fight with cancer and who continues to be an inspiration to many people afflicted with adversity. As a young boy he was often in the Park mountain biking, cross country skiing and running. He even held a student job at the Park.
Each year, proceeds from the race are donated to a cause that promotes an active lifestyle for youth in the area.
Determination, Perseverance, Passion
