 The Wakefield Moonlight River Run is inspired by the landscape in Wakefield (La Pêche), Quebec. Under the light of the moon, the course takes you through some of Wakefield’s most beautiful and picturesque landscapes along the Gatineau River. At the finish, you’ll be greeted with live music and a community celebration right in the heart of the village. Your participation in the Moonlight River Run helps raise funds for reputable local and global charitable organizations like the Wakefield Emergency Fund and the Wakefield Grannies. Their mandates include the health and well-being of youth. Over the past 4 years, this event has donated $16,834.4 to these organizations collectively.
