-" This race course was the most scenic and forgiving course I have ever raced on. I would definitely do this race over and over again. Great work!!" (Joy Higgins, Halifax)
This race will be like no other that you have experienced! Beginning and
ending at the Fortress of Louisbourg, the 8 mile course is a historic
journey from the 18th century into
day and returning back to the 18th century again! The runners will proceed over
a route carved by the French almost 300 years ago, dominated by gently rolling
breezes blowing in from the harbour. The initial 3 miles sees the participant
running through the streets of the Fortress and along the back of the site by
the harbour and
toward the modern community of Louisbourg. The runners will proceed through the
community to the former George D. Lewis School then continue back to the
along the “causeway” as they travel back in time over the Dauphin Bridge toward
the finish line!
The race is measured using the Jones Counter method.
