Listuguj Mi’gmaq Government Partners with 6th Annual RIG Race

The Listuguj Mi’gmaq Government is partnering with the 6th Annual RIG Race – a unique adventure and orientation race to be held from September 12 – 15, 2019.  In teams of two, athletes must race over 150 km or 300 km in 3 days, alternating several sports such as running, mountain biking, canoeing, swimming and rope challenges.

There will also be a 20km race specifically for the youth!

Athletes will race through Listuguj Mi’gmaq territory on the first day of the race on Friday, September 13, 2019.  They will make their way through various parts of our territory using only a compass and map.  The aim is to find check points located in areas that highlight our beautiful natural scenery such as the river, lakes and Gespe’gewa’gi trails.

We hope to cheer on a team from Listuguj!  If you’re interested in racing, the deadline to register is August 15, 2019.  Register now!

If you are interested in being a part of a volunteer committee or have any ideas to help make this a successful and fun event for everyone, you can contact Paige Isaac at or 418-788-2136. The Economic Development Unit will be the liaison between the RIG Race and Listuguj.
