Regardless of the distance run, many marathoners found the energy to wave to the media.

Runners from 24 countries arrived in Quebec City over the weekend of August 25. Despite the celebrations, the 20th edition of the Marathon SSQ de Québec was a bittersweet day. 

The runners crossed the Quebec Bridge for the last time - organizers say next year’s race will be entirely on the north shore.
