Join Legs for Literacy Fun Run

Legs for Literacy/Courir pour Lire features 5 races: a 5k, 10k, half marathon, marathon, and team relay. It is a Boston qualifier and a NB super series event. We begin in the Moncton downtown core and hit the trail system to Riverview and on to the streets and trails of Dieppe. It is a fast and flat course. We encourage all levels of fitness to participate with moneys raised supporting literacy projects in local school districts and other organizations. We have many volunteers along the route manning water stations, cheer stations and encouraging all runners and walkers, making the event memorable for everyone.
