«Together, further«. This is the slogan that the Ultra-Trail Harricana® has chosen this year to think about the different ways in which we can help each other get through the COVID-19 pandemic. This year’s race will therefore be held under the theme of solidarity. An opportunity to highlight the values of trail running: «sharing, openness, mutual help and respect«.
Because of the unique situation we are living, Canada’s borders are closed. As a result, the race will only be able to welcome «local» runners. But still, there will be a nice elite line-up. A dozen of runners likely to reach the podium will be present at the race, including the title holder, Guillaume Barry, and the two-time winner Jean-François Cauchon.
Eventually, it is important for the Ultra-Traill® Harricana that this edition takes place in strict compliance with the health protocol in place.
We look forward to it!
