MONTRÉAL, Sept. 21, 2019 /CNW Telbec/ - A total of 5,637 registered participants took part in the weekend of activities at the 29th edition of the International Oasis Marathon de Montréal, a musically themed Rock 'n' Roll Marathon Series® event. The 5K, sponsored by Sports Experts, started at 8 a.m., followed by the 10K at 8:30. To close the day, 525 children and their parents took part in the 1K P'tit marathon Tel-jeunes to raise funds for the youth help line.
