Race details

The rite of passage theme, designed and illustrated by artist Mireille St-Pierre with UTHC co-founder Geneviève Boivin, is a composition of the many shapes and colours of a landscape that calls to mind the living, unstructured nuances of a rite of passage’s evolution and tumult.

The UTHC’s goal this year is to bring as many new trail runners as more experienced trail runners to the event. To welcome all levels of performance, this seventh edition aims to place the organization’s mission front and centre, by making sure everyone can take part in outdoor sports activities.
