Support your community when you run the Banque Scotia 21k de Montréal et 5k, an international calibre half-marathon.
The event is sponsored by Scotiabank, a major supporter of Canadian running events, including Blue Nose Marathon, Vancouver Half Marathon, Ottawa Marathon and Toronto Waterfront Marathon.
Through the Scotiabank Charity Challenge, the bank’s sponsored marathons have helped raise more than $46 million - and counting - over the past 15 years.
This race, part of the Canada Running Series, is one of the largest running events in Montreal.
Runners can choose from three distances (5k, 10k or half marathon) and race their way through the city, starting in Parc Jean Drapeau.
Not only is it one of the largest races to take place in Montreal, it is also a major source of fundraising for charitable organizations, typically raising more than half a million dollars a year for multiple charitable organizations. The race starts near the Aquatic Complex in Parc Jean Drapeau. Start time is 9am, with a three hour cut-off in the half marathon.
After that, participants can spend the day enjoying the multiple amenities of the park.
Parc Jean Drapeau is situated to the east of downtown Montreal, Quebec, in the St Lawrence River. It comprises two islands, Saint Helen's Island and the artificial Notre Dame Island.
