First Aid

The goal of  QMT medical team is to always improve, to be aware of your needs, and to prevent rather than intervene. Rest assured that we will do whatever is necessary to help you in case of need. Patience will be required, and our staff may ask you to cover your face with a two-ply medical mask. They may also take the time to cover themselves and put on the necessary protective gear. Please be aware that throughout the race, the Doctor and Medical Director will be assessing the health of the runners. If necessary, they have the authority to remove a runner from the race. You will be able to identify the members of the medical team by a this orange cap below. They will also wear orange reflective suspenders.

bib : to come.

Course Safety Closers

People will be in charge of closing each one of the races. If necessary, you can wait for them. However, it is not recommended to go to them. Instead, ask a runner to assist you while you wait for help.
