Among new features this year is the revamped 5K course, which will now take runners into the streets of the Plateau Mont-Royal, passing historical streets such as Cherrier, Saint-Hubert and Saint-Denis. Another addition in 2017 is the Remix Challenge, which is presented for the first time in Quebec, in which participants combine the 5K with any other Sunday race to earn a third, special edition medal. Those taking on the challenge of completing two races in two days will earn a Remix Challenge Medal in addition to the medals they will earn for each race.
For the first time, the management of elite athletes has been delegated to the Fédération Québécoise d’athlétisme. This will be the fifth year of a partnership that provides continued support for young runners with a donation that serves to finance the FQA’s various activities. This collaboration also allows young runners to participate in the Quebec provincial running championship, which is the competition component of the P’tit Marathon 1 km Tel-jeunes.
