The Theme of 2020: Solidarity

Ensemble, plus loin. Together, Further. “

Produced by Carol-Anne Pedneault, an artist from Isle-aux-Coudres, the 2020 Ultra-Trail Harricana™ yearly visual symbolizes the solidarity of the UTHC with the wolf pack and their communion with other members of the forest such as birds, whose cries are sent high and far into the skies. 

With the slogan “Ensemble, plus loin / Together Further”, Ultra-Trail Harricana™ wishes to reflect on the ways in which members of the trail running community can collectively help one another in getting through the COVID-19 pandemic.

This theme will be an opportunity to put forward the values that are already part of the very DNA of trail runners; sharing, openness, mutual help and respect.
