Headliners 2020

Jean-François Cauchon Will participate in UTHC 125 Race details
  • ITRA : 826
  • Sex : Man
  • Country : Canada

“I’ve loved nature and hiking since I was a kid. I started ultra-running in 2014 on a dare from my sister and two of my cousins. My sister and I fell instantly in love with trail running and its ambiance, so it seemed like a logical next step in our quest to push ourselves”. That’s how Team Cauchon was born!

“Since then, we’ve been training and running together, and that helps us balance family, passion and work. We’re constantly pushing each other to be the best we can be.”

Elliot Cardin Will participate in UTHC 125 Race details
  • ITRA : 798
  • Sex : Man
  • Country : Canada

Elliot sees long-distance running as one of the best ways to contemplate the beauty of nature. The sport enables him to explore vast areas that are otherwise difficult to get to. The most important things for this 25-year-old athlete are to be active, have fun with friends, be healthy and spend time outside!

Bromont is his main stomping ground where he’s covered an impressive number of kilometers and feet of elevation with his two loyal trail partners, Alister Gardner and Alexis Lussier. He hones his speed on the road and on trails, but the mountains are his favourite place to run. Elliot broke into the ultra-trail world in 2016 when he won the 55-km race at the Bromont Ultra in 5:41.

Although he is motivated by performance, he never wants that aspect to get in the way of his passion.

Guillaume Barry Will participate in UTHC 125 Race details
  • ITRA : 790
  • Sex : Man
  • Country : Canada

Hailing from the Pyrenees in France, Guillaume has always preferred the mountains over the ocean. He’s loved cross-country skiing since he was a child, and running became his favourite sport when he was in university. He started running marathons before switching to trail running about three years ago.

Guillaume enjoys the overarching mental aspect of the sport and that women can compete equally with men. He sees running as a combination of useful, exhausting, minimalist, effective and renewing.

After an exceptional season in 2019, he is excited to see how his 2020 race might be different and will maybe even beat his time!

  • ITRA : 771
  • Sex : Man
  • Country : Canada

Alexandre is only in his third trail-running season, but his results are already signalling his potential. An engineer heading up a project in a hospital, Alexandre is a big proponent of cross-training and spends most of his free time training on the track, running the trails, biking or swimming. Eating vegan for the past eight years, he’s also passionate about nutrition to adopt healthy eating habits and find ways to optimize his sports performances.  

Now a tried-and-true trail lover, Alexandre is fascinated by how resilient our bodies are and how they are capable of so much more than we could imagine. He’s hoping to encourage his social circle to move more and to catch the trail-running bug.

David Savard-Gagnon Will participate in UTHC 125 Race details
  • ITRA : 770
  • Sex : Man
  • Country : Canada

David has been running ever since he was a kid. He hated taking the bus to school. When he started running, he challenged himself to get to school before the bus. He finally beat that bus many, many times!

“I ran my first marathon at 16. After 19 marathons, I decided to plunge into a new adventure: ultra-trail running and eventually the 125-km race at Harricana in 2018. I’m from Baie-Saint-Paul, and the locals call us runners “wolves.” It feels completely natural to take on this challenge on my turf, and I hope to do the pack proud!”, says David.
