The Grande marche de Pointe-Claire

The mayor of the City of Pointe-Claire, John Belvedere, and the members of City Council are pleased to invite all residents to the first edition of the Grande marche de Pointe-Claire, which will take place on Sunday, October 21 at Valois Park. Participants can choose to walk 3 or 5 kilometres.

“We encourage the community to take part in this free event for walkers of all ages. The Grande marche is the perfect occasion to move, meet new people, and chat with merchants in the area, all while taking care of your health,” stated Mayor Belvedere.

Starting at 9 a.m., participants are invited to Valois Park, at the entrance located on Belmont Avenue, where they will be greeted by Valois Village merchants. Stands will be set up for the occasion. At 9:45 a.m., walkers can take part in a group warm-up. The 5-kilometre walk will begin at 10 a.m., followed by the 3-kilometre walk at 10:20 a.m. Healthy snacks will be available at the finish line. Participants will also be entered into a prize draw.

The Grande marche will take place in 75 other cities and municipalities throughout the province simultaneously. The event is the result of a partnership between the Fédération des médecins omnipraticiens du Québec and the Grand défi Pierre Lavoie.
