Gaspesia Events is proud to partner with Canada Parks to offer the Ultra Trail Forillon (UTF) as a successor to the Ultra Trail du Bout du Monde, which ceased operations in 2020.
Discover sublime routes from 1 to 54 km between sea and mountains while discovering the history of an entire country through various paintings worthy of postcards.
Your first experience at Pace du Bonheur!
We are happy to partner with the Pace du Bonheur to allow as many people as possible to have a positive first experience of trail running. All our routes of 24 kilometers or less are exempt from a cutoff time to allow you to discover and appreciate the world-famous landscapes of Forillon!
The departures of the UTF are given in Grande-Grave, in the Forillon National Park, near the Bay of Gaspé. The routes mainly follow single-track trails leading to the most spectacular viewpoints in the area while enjoying the legendary welcome of the Gaspésiens!
