Description

Courses for intermediate and advanced runners. It is a fast race in single track trails open. The organization of this route makes it ideal for both runners who are new to the Ultra-Trail® and for those with more experience. It crosses throughout the Forillon National Park following the last 50 km the northernmost of the International Appalachian Trail. It includes moderately technical trails for the first 15 km.

Between the sea and the mountains, the start of this race will take place in the parking lot of the Trail Lakes in Rivière-au-Renard. From there, the runners will follow the trail to the intersection of Portage Trail and continue on the path of the peaks, crossing Highway 132 to the park entrance. After a few kilometers into the mountains, the runners will arrive at the summit of Mount St. Alban, then to Cape Gaspé, the end of the world. The route then returns along the coast to Great Strike.
