Ultra-Trail World Tour
The races in the Ultra-Trail® World Tour, in their specific natures, illustrate all the diversity of trail: steep paths of the Alps, California trails, hills and beaches of Hong Kong, Moroccan desert…
The races’ many different formats present participants with a real adaptation challenge.
While being fundamentally different, the Ultra-Trail® World Tour races have common values, which they are proud to share and to promote. Ethics, equality in sports, self-respect, respect for others, for the environment…
Taking part to the Ultra-Trail® World Tour is the opportunity, throughout the years, to discover cultural and sporting differences. Every continent is included: Africa, America, Asia, Europe, Oceania… providing opportunities to enhance their sporting culture, create new friendships, and to feed on emotions in order, one day perhaps, to be a “finisher” in all the events!
The North Face
Sometimes we run to get away from our everyday and to be one with the outdoors and its surroundings. It’s not often we get the chance to run in an region designated a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO — thanks to the countless hours put in by the race volunteers and organizers, and the support from the community of Charlevoix, we once again have the opportunity to run in one of the most serene landscapes the province of Quebec has to offer.
On behalf of The North Face Canada, thank you for participating in this year’s fifth edition of Ultra-Trail Harricana and giving back to a great cause — to raise funds and awareness for The Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada and for the 100,000 Canadians living with MS. Best of luck on race day and don’t forget to take a bit of time to soak up the views that La Malbaie has to offer while you’re out on the trails
