The Grand Défi de Victoriaville invites the community to participate in its brand-new cross-country event, the Défi des bois, sponsored by Plombaction, which will take place on Saturday, September 14, 2019 at the Parc Terre-des-jeunes de Victoriaville.
This cross-country running event has many race options: in nature, on grass, on gravel, or courses of 500 m, 2 km, 3 km parent-child, 4 km, 6 km and 10 km. Registered participants will receive a medal with the event's colours, a multi-use neck warmer and will have access to snacks during the event.
• Parent-child concept: youth aged 6 to 12 accompanied by an adult can participate in a 3 km cross country fun run. It's enjoyable for everyone!
• Shift the focus from performance to having fun. This run is an untimed, 2 km cross-country course that you can run as many times as you would like, up to a maximum of 10 km.
