Considering the situation with COVID-19 and the regulations issued by the various levels of government, we are under the obligation to cancel the 37th edition of Défi sportif AlterGo, which was scheduled to take place from April 24th to May 3rd, 2020.
We have closely monitored the evolution of the virus over the past few weeks and have taken under advisement the recommendations made by governments, health authorities, and partner sports federations at the provincial, national, and international levels.
We are very aware that this news will no doubt sadden the 8,000 athletes who participate in Défi sportif AlterGo and who have trained for several months in order to take part in the event. Despite the difficult decision to cancel the event, we consider it essential to prioritize everyone’s health and well-being.
We are sensitive to the situation and we do not want to take any risks regarding the health and safety of everyone involved: athletes, employees, volunteers, partners, and spectators. We will be contacting each of these groups over the next few days to provide them with additional information.
We would like to thank each of our volunteers, partners, federations, suppliers and all the invaluable people who have been involved in the past year. We extend our deepest gratitude and hope every one of you will be back for the next edition which will take place from April 23rd to May 2nd, 2021!
