TO ALL PARTICIPANTS TO THE LASALLE RACE
Because of the COVID 19 situation, it is impossible for the Kilomaîtres de LaSalle and the Borough of LaSalle to hold the 41th Edition of the Course populaire on the 29th of March.
We are now talking with the Borough, our sponsors and suppliers, and the Circuit Endurance to see if the race can be postponed to a future date in 2020, or if it must be cancelled for this year.
We will communicate directly with all the people who have registered as soon as this decision is taken, which will depend notably on the evolution of the virus during the next few weeks. We will give a choice to all the people who have registered.
Thank you for having chosen our race in 2020. Please visit the Circuit Endurance Web site or Facebook for more info on the situation. (http://www.circuitendurance.ca/lasalle/)
