The Kouchibouguac Fabulous Fall Festival and the Marathon Luc Gallant: An exceptional fall experience at Kouchibouguac!
KOUCHIBOUGUAC, NEW BRUNSWICK, October 7th, 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. This year, it will be possible to participate in both the Kouchibouguac Fabulous Fall Festival activities and the “Marathon Luc Gallant” during the Thanksgiving long weekend.
The Kouchibouguac Fabulous Fall Festival is offering up a fun challenge for visitors: go hiking or camping in the park and then tell us about it or share your pictures on Facebook. The weekend schedule also includes an evening at the outdoor theatre, a voyageur canoe outing, a friendly washer-toss competition, a pumpkin carving contest and a campsite decoration event.
On Sunday October 13th, Parks Canada and the “Marathon Luc Gallant” organizing committee are very proud to hold the 5th “Marathon Luc Gallant” in Kouchibouguac National Park.
“We’re really excited to hold the Marathon for its 5th year in a row in Kouchibouguac National Park,” says race organizer Lisa Johnson Thebeau. “One of the objectives of the Marathon is to encourage young people to become physically active and to adopt a healthy lifestyle.”
Advance registration for the 5 km, 10km, half-marathon and marathon can be done online through Atlantic Chip.
