La course aura lieu 22 et 23 octobre 2016



Since 2000, IGT Legs for Literacy has grown into the largest running event in New Brunswick!

Mark October 23rd on your calendars for the 2016 IGT Legs for Literacy event. Last year was another success and this year, we look forward to putting on another great event. We will be announcing our charitable donations to local literacy projects soon! Our 2016 planning has already begun so stay tuned for updates by checking the web site, on facebook at https://www.facebook.com/LegsforLiteracyCourirPourLire or sign up for our newsletter here.

Once again we will feature four races- 5k, 10k, half and full marathons. Based on runner feedback, runners really enjoy our route: we plan some minor adjustments that will be designed to make it even better. We will also have a Family Run/Walk on race weekend.

Did you know -

  • This year we will be a RunNB Running Room Super Series Event for the half marathon distance and the NB half marathon championship.
  • Our course is a Boston Qualifier (certified course NBSS-2014-106-BDC) and half marathon times can be used for qualification at the New York City Marathon!
