Beneva Quebec City Marathon and Beneva Montreal Marathon: Cancellation of both events confirmed by promotors
Quebec, June 15, 2021 – The promotors of the Beneva Quebec City Marathon (Gestev and Corporation Événements Course de Québec) and of the Beneva Montreal Marathon (Événements GPCQM) have announced the cancellation of the 2021 edition of their respective events. As the title partner of these two sports events that were to be held next fall, Beneva supports the respective decision of the promotors, who felt the conditions necessary to the success of their events were lacking.
Mindful of the well-being of the community and dedicated to the promotion of healthy lifestyles, Beneva encourages runners to pursue their training. The company will continue to support its partners in the successful delivery of the 2022 edition of these major sporting events.
