Québec City Celtic Festival 2014 A new sporting event for everyone!

May 8, 2014

The 9th Annual Quebec City Celtic Festival takes place September 3 to 7, 2014. This year, This year, the Festival is launching a brand new sporting event: the Kilt Run!
The five-kilometer fun run will be held Saturday, September 6 at 10:00 a.m., bringing together kilted runners or walkers! Rather than being given a shirt upon arrival, each participant will receive a kilt! The event is open to adults and young people aged 12 and older. The race site will be announced later.

Other "Kilt Runs" are held annually in Perth, Scotland, Antigonish and Halifax, Nova Scotia and Perth, Ontario in Canada and Mansaquan, New Jersey and Sand Lake, New York in the United States.

The Celtic Festival’s complete program will be unveiled in June via a press release and on the website. We can already announce an addition to the athletic part of the Festival: Hurling. The classic activities have also been enhanced: the Highland Games, Gaelic football (the Provincial Championship will be held here in Quebec City) as well as cultural activities such as conferences and evenings of tales and legends. The site at Chaussée des Écossais, among others, will present a variety of family activities.
In closing, the Quebec City Celtic Festival would like to thank and highlight the strong support of its public and private partners who make this event possible, including the the City of Quebec, McAuslan, the Morrin Centre, St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, the St. Andrew's Society of Montreal, Construction Management Consultants (CMC), English Conversation Workshops, Auberge Internationale de Québec and the Scotch Whisky Club of Quebec.
