For this third edition of this particular challenge, it is still possible to visit the 1000000ensemble.com website in order to record kilometers “by pedaling, running, swimming, walking, rowing”!
Among a wide range of activities, Friday's day includes, in Mauricie, a 750m walk with children and teenagers in Shawinigan as well as a "colored race" in Trois-Rivières. No doubt Quebec will manage to exceed one million kilometres. The odometer was already approaching 250,000 km on Friday morning.
Regarding the group of cyclists who left Thursday from the borough of La Baie, as part of the 12th edition of the 1000 KM, they had concluded their first day in St-Raymond following the first four stages. The goal now was to go to Mauricie on Friday.
