Love could end up on the hiking trails of Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean. The course after me organization is proof that sport is good for the heart as it offers activities for single athletes who want to meet people. A day for singles of all ages is being organized, for the first time in the region, on Sunday, September 22 at the Eucher Trail in La Baie.
“It was born from the idea of a single girl who wanted to organize sports activities for singles. It’s about bringing people together in a context different from what is offered today, “explains Guillaume Drouin, who has led the movement since 2018.
The day organized by Cours après moi starts with an icebreaker activity. Participants will meet several other singles during the eight-kilometer hike. The group is divided according to the age of the participants and, subsequently, according to their level of physical fitness.
Singles will be able to end the meeting day beautifully by taking part in a type 5 to 7 activity.
