Lim­ited places left in Ma­gog Marathon

Stanstead Journal - - SPORTS - Vic­to­ria Vanier ma­gog

Regis­tra­tions­for the first edition of the Ma­gog Marathon, which will be held on Oc­to­ber 28th, have been com­ing in so fast that or­ga­niz­ers have had to limit the num­ber of par­tic­i­pants. “I’m sorry that I have to do this. When I pre­sented this project to the City of Ma­gog, I expected about 500 par­tic­i­pants for the first edition. I didn’t even dream about get­ting 1000 par­tic­i­pants and, now, we have more than 1800!” ex­plained Patrick Mahoney of

CourirEnEstrie. There are still lim­ited spa­ces in the 1 km, the 5 km, the 21.1 km and the 42.2 km races while the pop­u­lar 10 km race is com­pletely full.

The Ma­gog Marathon is a fundraiser for the Mem­phrem­a­gog Hospi­tal Foun­da­tion. Since Hal­loween is just around the cor­ner, both large and small run­ners are en­cour­aged to run in cos­tume! For more in­for­ma­tion call Mr. Mahoney at 819 640-2687 or visit the CourirEnEstrie web­site.
