I started running when I was 11. I watched my big brother, Rachid, launch his professional running career at the Marathon des sables, and I wanted to follow in his footsteps.

I was born in the desert and it’s the terrain I know, but I want to take on mountains, too, to progress in my sports career. I’m slowly moving up the ladder in trail running, and the Ultra-Trail Harricana will be a great opportunity to have an enriching experience on the Ultra-Trail World Tour.

Colton grew up in Connecticut (USA) playing all kinds of sports that taught him to respect the game, work hard, compete to the best of his ability and always find joy in whatever you’re doing. Running came back into his life as a bit of a stress reliever when he was in college. In 2012, Colton took a job at a local running store, not thinking much of it. But as time went along, he became more and more hooked on running and exploring the wilderness.

“It has become more than a passion, but also a career now that I’ve been working in multiple different running shops across the country. When not selling shoes, I can most often be found with a smile on my face in the mountains near Bend, Oregon, my current home”, says he.

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. 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.

“I’ve always tried to push my limits. When I was young, that meant lots of time spent outdoors and hiking with my family. I started running with my brother when I was pretty young, at first trailing our father on our bikes as he trained for a marathon. But it was when I discovered trail running in 2014 that really tested the depth my abilities. Ever since then, I’ve been trying to push that limit by training with my brother, with the ultimate goal of running a 100-miler. I do whatever I can to share my passion for trail running with others!

“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 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.
