Course / Route Map


The marathon will start from Métivier street, at Lévis’ Convention Center. It is a point-to-point course between Lévis and Quebec City. The course distinguishes itself from other races in that kilometer markers are posted in reverse order, indicating the remaining distance to the finish line. Among other things, this allows all events to start at the same time and on the same course, from the appropriate distance away from the finish line.

On the course, yellow markers will be set out on the right side of the street, in descending order, to indicate each kilometer. Red markers will also be placed on the right side of the road, in ascending order, to indicate every 5 miles. Live bands and music will be playing along the marathon course.
