The revamped marathon route retains its urban, postcard character and focuses on the most beautiful attractions of Quebec City, a world heritage site. The route, although recently modified due to the preparatory work for the future tramway, crosses three boroughs and nine districts. It is a condensed tour of the city and a excellent sporting challenge with the most beautiful colors of the fall!
The Quebec City Marathon course is measured according to international standards and is certified by Athletics Canada. Therefore, runners participating can use it to qualify for marathons, such as the Boston Marathon.
