The French Government supports a large number of associations in Saint-Pierre et Miquelon and has been seduced by the concept of the ROUTE since its creation. With all local authorities, the State through the Ministry of Outremer, the Ministry of Sports and the Prefecture responds to each edition of Route Halifax Saint-Pierre and actively supports the event.
The Blue, White and Red flavor of the race and the need to pursue regional cooperation efforts with nearby Canada confirm the French government’s interest in the ROUTE, which remains an important promotional and cultural vector for this part of France in North America.
The economic repercussions, the creation of lasting links between the inhabitants of the archipelago and the visitors coming for the race are some of the fundamental factors that make the French State a leading partner for the ROUTE.
The ROUTE is proud of its very French coloring!
