COPY - 5th edition of the XC DES BOISÉS

5th edition of the XC DES BOISÉS
to benefit the Charles-Bruneau Foundation! 

Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned runner, the 5th edition of the XC des Boisés offers you the chance to experience a great family and friendly event. In a pleasant forest environment, the 2km, 5km and 10km courses offer a nice balance between dirt trails, narrow trails and fine gravel trails, all without a big difference in altitude. These courses are perfect for an introduction to running in the forest: uneven terrain, roots and mud will be present... you'll be delighted for sure!

For a third year, the XC des Boisés is associated with the Charles-Bruneau Foundation, whose mission is to give all children with cancer the best chance of recovery by financing research and supporting the development of projects dedicated to pediatric hemato-oncology. All profits from this 5th edition will be proudly donated to the Charles-Bruneau Foundation.
