2011 SSQ Quebec City Marathon
A summary of scenes from the 2011 SSQ Quebec City Marathon (Deux Rives). The 3 day event includes a womens only 5k run (dames de coeur) and the main event is a full slate , 5k, 10k, half marathon and full marathon races.
Hurricane Irene made its presence known as the winds & rain forced the race organizers to cancel the full marathon, but let the other distances continue since the winds would have picked up around noon.
It’s about the same number of participants as with the Halifax Bluenose, but 100 times better organized and infrastructure in place to make the event very well organized.
