MONTREAL, July 3, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - Although there are still two months to go before the Rock'n'Roll Oasis Montreal Marathon, the event is almost full. Except for the Marathon and the P'tit Marathon 1 km Tel-jeunes, which still have a few spaces remaining, registration for the 5 km, 10 km and Half-Marathon races has already closed. "The organization expects a record high turnout for the 2014 edition," stated Dominique Arsenault, Marathon spokesperson. The enthusiasm to participate shows just how much people value physical activity, which delights us to no end."
The Marathon, which has been part of the Rock'n'Roll Marathon Series since 2012, offers a unique running experience that brings together people of all ages, regardless of their level of training. According to Ms. Arsenault, participants want to enjoy the race for many different reasons: "It may be to meet a personal challenge, or to take part in the largest gathering of runners in Quebec, or simply to satisfy their curiosity. Anything that gives you that desire to cross the finish line is a good reason!"
The event welcomes participants from close to 50 countries in a friendly and festive atmosphere. True to its concept, the Rock'n'Roll Oasis Montreal Marathon will present musical performances all along the route of its various races, giving runners and supporters the opportunity to hear local musical talent while running or cheering on September 28.

About the Rock'n'Roll Oasis Montreal Marathon
This year marks the 24th edition of the Rock'n'Roll Oasis Montreal Marathon. Organized by Festival de la Santé, in conjunction with Competitor Canada, the Rock'n'Roll Marathon Series is the world's largest running series, with over 500,000 runners participating in events worldwide every year. The series started in 1998 with the simple idea of making running fun, and has transformed the running landscape by livening up the route with live bands, cheer teams and entertaining water stations, creating a block-party atmosphere for participants and spectators alike. Today, the series of marathons and half-marathons has spread to more than 28 destination cities, drawing visitors from around the world. Over the 17-year history of the Rock'n'Roll Marathon Series, charity partners have raised more than $300 million through the events for a variety of worthy causes.
