Local sports clubs unite to promote healthy lifestyles

The Chaleur Road Runners Club and Chaleur Cycling Club have joined forces in an effort to promote healthy lifestyles.

Road Runners Club president Louise Thibodeau tells the Northern Light that the new partnership is a result of cyclists wanting to run, and runners wanting to cycle.

She expects the merger will result in more competitors for the upcoming duathlon and triathlons in Beresford on July 22nd.

Cycling club president Dr. Francis Martineau hopes to see a 100 to 150km chip-timed cycling race developed for the region over the next year.
