We have implemented route improvements based on participant feedback while also focusing on runner and volunteer safety.
All races will start and finish at Canada Street, across from Moncton’s new Downtown Events Centre.
The following street closures have been granted for Sunday October 21, 2018 between 5 a.m. and 4 p.m.
Delays to motorists are expected to be minimal, with participants in the downtown core primarily between 8am and 10am. Please plan travel with these closures in mind and do come out and cheer your family, friends and community as they run through our neighbourhoods!

The IGT Legs for Literacy organizing committee would like to assure residents that every effort will be made to ensure that the impact of this event is minimal and that a positive experience is had by all. We are proud to be the largest running/walking event in New Brunswick and believe these new changes will help us continue to be a leader for sport tourism in the province.
IGT Legs for Literacy is a not-for-profit organization governed by a passionate volunteer board of directors and 400+ dedicated community volunteers. We would like to thank you in advance for your continued support!
