course

Departure and arrival are at the UTCC Village.

Runners start with an easy section of 3 km before climbing Mont-Olivine (670 m) who has an exceptional view on the Chic-Chocs. From there, you head towards La Serpentine, climb the Grande Cuve of Mont-Albert west to then head to the ravito La Paruline where you'll reach the halfway point.

For the return, you backtrack to the Versant junction to take the direction of the summit of Mont-Albert (1088 m). You cross the plateau and end your course with a 6.5 km descent leading to the UTCC Village.

Runners will climb a total of 3 summits ranging from medium to very technical trails.
