To satisfy the endurance junkies like Quebec athlete Hélène Dumais, we designed a 150 miles course, informally named “Hélène’s 60 Hours”. With her thirst for more, she came to us with the challenge of designing an epic new course that will get you to experience hidden jewels of Gaspesia that can only be reached going the extra mile.
Start : June 24th 2022, 8 AM, see section “schedule”
Start Location : To be confirmed soon
Cap time to complete the race : 60 hours
Provided by the organisation :
This is an unsupported challenge. Participants must be prepared with the right gear and clothing as a security measure in order to deal with possible problems encountered like unpredictable weather, injury, or GI distress for example.
Runners must have all their mandatory equipment with them at all times during the race.
* Depending on the weather conditions announced, the final decision will be communicated to you at the pre-race meeting.
The route of the Ultra Trail Gaspesia 60 Hélène’s 60 Hours will allow you to explore of the Land’s End of the Gaspé from north to south!
If the final part on Percé is set at 100% or almost, changes could occur on the course in the Gaspé sector. But fear not … it will be epic!
For the teams who will complete the relay challenge, expect stages of 40 to 60 km to be completed self supported!
We want to make the course route official by February 1st at the latest!
