Partial opening of the Circuit this Weekend

April 21-22, 2018

On Saturday and Sunday, due to the Banque Scotia 21k de Montréal race, the Circuit Gilles‑Villeneuve will be open to traffic and cyclists from 1 p.m. This does not affect the cycling link between the South Shore and Parc Jean‑Drapeau.

Plan your trip and avoid unpleasant surprises by consulting often the important notices or the schedule of activities and events that are of interest to you.

Montreal Hypothermic Half Marathon

Montreal Hypothermic Half Marathon

The hypothermic half-marathon is a 21.1-kilometre winter run that is simultaneously held in many North American cities. Not only is the event designed to promote the sport and healthy lifestyles, it also serves as a fundraiser for various causes.

The Montréal edition of the event is put on by the Running Room organization and the funds raised will go to the Tristan WilliaMS Foundation, in support of people with multiple sclerosis. Anyone wishing to take part in the run but lack a bit of training can sign up as a walker.

The event also provides a great opportunity to discover or rediscover Parc Jean-Drapeau, since the course will take you along various sectors of the park. On Île Sainte‑Hélène, the route will bring you near the Aquatic Complex, the playgrounds, into the gunpowder area (the former British military depot that dates back to the early 19th century), and also around the famed Biosphere. The Cosmos bridge will enable runners to cross the Saint Lawrence River and continue their run on Île Notre‑Dame, where they'll go along the Olympic Basin, take Circuit Gilles‑Villeneuve and get a good look at the Floralies Gardens, the site of many magnificent public art works.
