To celebrate spring's return with great fanfare, the Grand Défi de Victoriaville invites the community to kick off spring by participating in one of the many races (500 m, 1 km, 2 km, 5 km, 10 km, 15 km, 15-5 km combo) or power walking competitions (5 km/1 hour) they offer during the Bonjour Printemps event, sponsored by Volkswagen.
During this not-to-be-missed event in Victoriaville and surrounding area, all registered participants will receive a medal with the event's colours, a Buff (a must-have, multi-use neck accessory for runners) and access to snacks and a refreshment kiosk. Featuring:
• A new course that guides participants to downtown Victoriaville
• A stress-free, untimed 5 km Superhero costume race, inspired by Pace du Bonheur
• Awards valued at more than $2,000 for the Coupe 5K Guillaume Ouellet
• The Centre-du-Québec FADOQ Regional Games: this event will give FADOQ members aged 50 years and older the opportunity to qualify for the Trois-Rivières Provincial Games by competing in the 5 km and 10 km races.

Please note that once you've registered, a $5 fee will be charged to change courses or distance and a $10 fee will be charged to transfer your registration to another person, in addition to paying the difference between the cost of the events.
