An authentic trail running experience in Canada’s wild backcountry. Trails dense with raw nature and wildlife. A rich ecosystem in a unique UNESCO world biosphere reserve. Summits where the wind carries the scents of the St. Lawrence River and the boreal forest.
What can you expect at the Ultra-Trail® Harricana? To run like the wolf and free your wild!
The race is a perfect mix of flowing and technical terrain. The start is right in the heart of Charlevoix’s wild backcountry. Passing several lakes, runners get the chance to encounter Canadian wildlife, including beaver, porcupine or moose. Farther along, they face four ascents: Mount Lac-à-L’Empêche and Mount Morios, with their breathtaking panoramic views of the area; Noyee mountain, with its ridge shaped like a woman floating on water; and lastly, Noire mountain, on trails specially developed by the Harricana team, that provides a beautiful view of Mont Grand-Fonds.
