Undergound Race

Tomorrow morning it’s the Undergound Race, part of the Montreal High Lights Festival!

It’s a 5 kilometers run through the tunnels and corridors, from the Carrefour Industrielle Alliance to the Place Desjardins. About 750 people will participate! The race begins at 8h30. There’s a spot for people to cheer runners on located at the Place Ville Marie, enter corner Mansfield and Cathcart.

And I’m one of the participants! It’s my first “real” race, so I’m excited. I know I won’t have the best time, but it’s all about participating and having fun. I’ll write about my experience tomorrow afternoon/evening if I am not dead of exhaustion!

Oh and for those who’d like to take part in the event, you can also walk the course at your own pace starting at 10h30.

All the information is on the Festival’s website.

    Why is it boring? :P I thought it was fun! And there are more fun events to come, like the “Nuit Blanche!” I’ll write more about the race tonight…

    Congratulations, did you have fun? I haven’t run in it… didn’t notice a listing when I was working out my race schedule (maybe next year), but this is the second year I’ve stumbled upon it by fluke (returning a rental car to National and heading to the metro). It looks kind of quirky and fun!

    I had my camera with me and posted a small video to YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WzCPTUuncQg

    I will also be posting a couple of photos that I took of it to my blog.
