Thou­sands of run­ners ex­pected for Ma­gog Marathon

Stanstead Journal - - CLASSIFIED - Ma­gog

of this year’s Marathon de Ma­gog, the event’s fourth edi­tion, are ex­pect­ing more than two thou­sand run­ners to take part in the multi-length event. And al­ways happy to get lo­cal busi­nesses in­volved, the or­ga­niz­ers have asked An­drew Stoy, of Chez l’Bar­bier, to do old-fash­ioned shaves and hair­cuts; the Bistro Chez Si­rano will serve onion soup to all the run­ners af­ter the races: and make-up artist An­nie Poulin, of Ma­gog, will dec­o­rate the faces of chil­dren Sun­day morn­ing.

Marathon de Ma­gog is also proud to be as­so­ci­ated with the new man­u­fac­turer of the en­ergy gel Brix. The new prod­uct has a maple syrup base and is with­out any ad­di­tives, is con­ceived and made in Que­bec, and will be the ‘of­fi­cial’ en­ergy provider for the run­ners. Also, thanks to Krispy Ker­nels, the marathon­ers will have the chance to win a one week va­ca­tion for two to the Ba­hamas as well as the chance to take part in the Nas­sau Marathon if they are able to run a 43rd kilo­me­ter at the end of their race.

to the part­ner­ship with the Fed­er­a­tion des Pro­duc­teurs de Lait du Que­bec, the spe­cial­ist of the 1500m, Charles Philib­ert Thi­boutot, will be at the event where, among other du­ties, he will open the chil­dren’s race. Mr. Philib­ert Thi­boutot fin­ished in third place at the Pan am Games in Toronto, a 15th place at the World Cham­pi­onships, and set a Que­bec record in the 1000m with a time of 2:21:02.

for the race can be made on site on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 24th,
