New walk­ing or run­ning club

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Ma­gog

TheCSSS Mem­phrem­a­gog and CourirenEstrie have joined forces to cre­ate a free walk­ing and run­ning club for peo­ple of all abil­i­ties in Ma­gog: Les Mol­lets de Ma­gog. The club’s train­ing ses­sions will be held on Wed­nes­day evenings at 4:45pm, and will be­gin at the Ma­gog Arena.

“The aim of the club is to get peo­ple to­gether to move,” said An­nick Thibeault, a ki­ne­si­ol­o­gist at the CSSSM. “Of­ten peo­ple get dis­cour­aged af­ter a few train­ing bouts be­cause they find it bor­ing to train alone. We hope that the group ef­fect will be pos­i­tive for those who want to join.”

“As a res­i­dent of Ma­gog, I found it dis­ap­point­ing that there was no lo­cal club, es­pe­cially now that the city has a marathon. My aim with this club, as with the race cir­cuit, is to get peo­ple to move,” said Pa­trick Ma­honey of CourirenEstrie . For more in­for­ma­tion check the Mol­lets de Ma­gog Face­book site or call An­nick Thibeault at 819 8433381, ext. 2790.
