Race Information

Journey back to the 18th century in this 12k out and back run to the Fortress of Louisbourg National Historic Park.

The runners will proceed over a route carved by the French almost 300 years ago, dominated by gently rolling hills and gentle breezes blowing in from the harbour. The initial 2.5 miles sees the runner passing the historic Royal Battery and proceeding from a paved to a well-graded gravel road leading to the right and behind the Fortress site. You will run through the streets of the "Old Town" pass the King's Bastion and out through the Dauphin Gate. A causeway leads you from the Fortress and back onto the same paved road that predominated the intial stage of the race. Stay to the right - it is now approximately 2.5 miles to the finish line.

The race is capped at 225 participants, so sign up early!
