Following the Quebec City municipal authority’s decision to withdraw support for fifteen major events, including the Quebec City Marathon, Gestev and Quebec Running Events Corporation have announced that this year’s big event planned for October 1–3, 2021 will be cancelled.

Organisers said they had been committed to delivering a safe and secure event in the strictest compliance with public health measures, especially in light of the recent relaxing of the rules set out in the Government of Quebec’s reopening plan announced on May 18, which gave the green light to sporting activities and competitions effective June 25.

Registered entrants will have the option to transfer their registration to the Lévis Half-Marathon, scheduled for the weekend of August 28–29. As well as moving from May to August this year, this event will be held over two days instead of one to comply with public health regulations stipulating how many participants are permitted to be in a given place at one time. This change will make it possible to accommodate a maximum of 5,225 entrants for the 21.1K half-marathon, 10K, 5K and 2K Kids Race distances. Entrants who would prefer to receive a refund will be able to choose this option instead.

“This is just another rain check for the Beneva Quebec City Marathon, a healthy invitation from Brunet. The event will be back in October 2022,” said organisers.
