Longueuil, May 13, 2019 - For the fourth consecutive year, the Réseau de transport de Longueuil (RTL) will partner with the Marathon SSQ Assurance de Longueuil, to take place on May 18 and 19 in Longueuil.
Thousands of participants of all levels and from all over Québec are expected for the two days of activities. The races will be staggered over the Saturday and Sunday and will all start from Colisée Jean-Béliveau.
