Our story is one of transformation.
It started as an idea, a dream, to build a home for running (Maison de la Course). We had to find the “house” which was to be the start of this beautiful project; a place where people are friendly and enthusiastic. We wanted to find the ideal home to create this beautiful project; a place where people are friendly and enthusiastic. In June 2011, Josée came across a rundown and nearly abandoned property that had been for sale for some time; a place that nobody wanted. She immediately saw “her home”.
People were skeptical, but Josée had a vision, and with remarkable energy she put everything in motion to see her dream come true in Mont-Saint-Hilaire on April 5th, 2012. From the very beginning, we welcomed a wide variety of individuals: experienced runners, people new to the sport, curious people who became runner because after chatting with Josée, everyone seems to turn into a runner.
The once abandoned location immediately became a special place of pride for all.
In 2015, a second “home” came to life in Sainte-Thérèse; another dream come true with an extraordinary team – it quickly became a second location for friendly gatherings and a place where everyone feels at home.
It was with great joy that we announced the 2017 opening of our third home, located in the Griffintown neighborhood in Montreal!
Having a vision, seeing the possibilities and potential and getting the work done; that’s what –Maison de la Course- is all about. As a runner, this may also be your story; a story of transformation, of vision, energy and tenacity.
Let’s pursue these goals together!
